St. John's Auxiliary

Mission

The Purpose of St. John’s Auxiliary is to promote and advance the welfare of St. John’s Medical Center.  This is accomplished by educating  members so they may serve as ambassadors for the Medical Center in the community, and through fundraising activities and service to the hospital and its patients. 

 

Our Current Campaign

Our current campaign supports high-dose rate brachytherapy at St. John’s Medical Center. Brachytherapy treats prostate, breast, skin, and gynecological malignancies.  We will fund the microselection afterloader, a necessary piece of equipment for this specialized form of radiation therapy. The process involves temporarily placing a sealed radioactive source inside a catheter for a specific amount of time. It is tightly regulated by the afterloader, a computer controlled machine attached to the catheter. This treatment provides cancer patients with curative therapy with fewer side effects and a shorter recovery period.

We are pleased to support the hospital’s expanding, local cancer program, an affiliate of the renowned Huntsman Cancer Institute.
