The Valley Foundation's BIG gift!

People often call The Valley Medical Center Foundation "The Valley Foundation" for short...and I am right there, every time, to correct them. "No no," I say, "It's VALLEY MEDICAL CENTER Foundation."

This is obnoxious, but important.

Important because there is actually "The Valley Foundation" in Los Gatos, and today they told us they are contributing $100,000 to our Sobrato Cancer Center campaign!

We're absolutely thrilled by this, and I want to thank their board: Phil Boyce, Joe Parisi, Richard Sieve M.D., Ed LaVeque M.D., Herbert Kain M.D., Arthur Basham M.D., Dan Doore and Ralph Ross.

Big thanks to the Valley Foundation for helping us provide the finest care to our oncology patients...the photo above depicts our new linear accelerator, one of the divices we purchased earlier this year. A "linac" delivers radiation to kill cancer cells - a life-saving technology. It's going to be delivered by crane next week, which should be so cool we ought to sell tickets.

There's still more we need, of course, so if you would like to get involved with the Sobrato Cancer Center campaign please call us day or night at 408-885-5299.
