    Why We Give to the Foundation: “We love our community. This is our home, and we are big advocates for our educational system and the hospital, which set the tone of what we can become as a community. We want the best for our community, and never had any doubt after college that we would settle in the place we loved. Our community is a jewel, and we do not need to be shy about what we have to offer. We believe in the Whitfield Healthcare Foundation and what we can do together to support excellence in health care. It is our privilege to give back to the community which has provided so many opportunities for us and our family.”

    What Excites Us about the Cancer Institute: “When Hamilton introduced plans for the Cancer Institute, we were amazed at the remarkable foresight and planning that had gone into the project. It is almost overwhelming to think how fortunate we will be to have this type of facility in our community. So many of our friends and extended family have been touched by cancer, and it will be an answered prayer to have this level of care close to home. Hamilton doesn’t do anything less than the best, and our community always rallies for the best. We’ve always had leaders who have helped us move our community forward, and this facility is the ‘next big thing’ we need to do as a community.”

    Jane and Tommy, thank you for your passion and love for our community. You understand the critical role of health care in our community’s future. We are greatly honored to have your support and thank you for being ONE with us.
