Supporting Excellence in Patient Care

Lynne "Angel" Harvey recognition in Rush University Cancer CenterLynne “Angel” Harvey had the forethought to leave behind a generous contribution for Rush. Inspired by her treatment at Rush, Harvey left behind funds to provide infusion chairs and other amenities to an expanded outpatient cancer center at Rush, allowing more comfort for oncology patients as they are treated.

“She treated us with respect, and we treated her with respect,” said Lois Means, RN, about Harvey. “We had a wonderful relationship.”

It’s how medicine should be

Just as Harvey’s patient experience motivated her to help others, you too can join our caregivers in changing — and saving — lives. Giving to Rush’s patient care services allows us to continue treating patients from Chicago and all over the world, using proven techniques and advanced technology and equipment. Gifts of all sizes are appreciated to help us fill an array of patient needs.
