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.”
