The Auxiliary of Jupiter Medical Center made a $1 million gift to support the new Anderson Family Cancer Institute, set to begin construction in early 2018.
The Auxiliary is a group of more than 600 volunteers who provide support to the hospital, including managing the hospital’s gift shop and off-campus thrift shop. Proceeds and donations from the shops allowed the Auxiliary to raise the $1 million gift, which will be recognized with the naming of the oncology boutique within the institute.
The Anderson Family Cancer Institute, a 55,000-square-foot research and cancer treatment center is where the boutique will be located, which will provide cancer patients with needs such as wig fittings and prostheses by trained professionals.
