In six years, Beauty In Grace has made a significant impact on women’s services at MemorialCare Saddleback Medical Center. We have raised more than $450,000 to make important purchases for our hospital.
In our inaugural year, this women’s giving circle helped fund breast MRI equipment for diagnostic screening and biopsies. In 2018, we purchased NicView video streaming equipment for the NICU, so parents of preemies could see their babies on a smartphone or tablet when they couldn’t be at the bedside. In 2019, we funded cryoablation equipment and a blanket warmer for the Breast Center, which freezes fibroadenomas and early-stage tumors.
We have also purchased bilirubin testing units and a cardiac monitor/defibrillator for Labor, Delivery, Recovery & Postpartum (LDRP) unit. We are so pleased that this equipment is already being utilized by our staff. In 2021, membership gifts supported the cath lab renovation to treat cardiovascular patients. In 2022, the group consisted of 88 members, the most of any previous year, and raised more than $100,000 to benefit the Breast Cancer Navigation program.
We ask all members to make an annual gift of $1,000 or more. By pooling gifts of this size, the group can more substantially impact the women’s issues relevant to them. Members gather annually at a beautiful luncheon to hear how membership gifts are touching women's lives at Saddleback Medical Center.
