A Labor of Love
Jean Howard was dearly loved by her family, friends and the staff who treated her at Saddleback Medical Center as she valiantly fought ovarian cancer for seven years. Her gentle, yet fighting spirit inspired those around her, most of all, her husband, Bill.
Bill Howard envisioned this infusion center as a way to honor his beloved wife, Jean Howard. Bill Howard, his family, friends and other donors from our community contributed significant philanthropic gifts to fund the construction of this special outpatient center. This center would not be a reality without their outpouring of generous charitable support.
