Auxiliary has throughout the year. In the past, it has supported the affiliation
between St. John’s Medical Center and the Huntsman Cancer Institute,
3-D mammography equipment, and the Living Center Activity bus. This year
we are raising funds for our recently announced $250,000 pledge to support
the purchase of a microselection afterloader, a computer-controlled machine
necessary to offer high-dose brachytherapy cancer treatment at St. John’s
