The McNally Family Foundation recently made a very generous seven-figure gift to Eugene M. and Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute that named The McNally Family Foundation Center for Patient Support Services. This gift will help with integration of the many cancer support programs offered at the Institute. It will ensure the services continue to thrive and serve our patients well. With the newly formed assimilation, Lynn Cancer Institute can assure funding for all the services detailed under each of the respective patient-centered programs.
John and Arline McNally are selfless philanthropists that have resided in Boca Raton since 1969 and have always provided active “hands-on” involvement at Boca Raton Regional Hospital. In addition to their most recent donation, the McNallys founded the Tree of Hope initiative at Lynn Cancer Institute in 2019. The Tree of Hope has quickly grown into a beloved program at the cancer institute. Tree of Hope ensures that all new cancer patients receive a comfort tote that includes a plush blanket, comfy slipper socks, performance cap, a journal and pen, a double-walled tumbler for hot and cold drinks, and lip balm to help sooth patients during their treatment process.
“Boca Raton Regional Hospital considers itself extremely fortunate to have philanthropists like Arline and John,” states Lincoln Mendez, North Region Executive of Baptist Health and CEO of Boca Raton Regional Hospital. “Their giving is steadfast and focused on the true well-being of our patients. The McNallys are regular supporters of League of Ribbons, which funds many different programs at Lynn Cancer Institute, including, but not limited to, providing grocery and gasoline gift cards for cancer patients, as well as yoga and massage therapy. Arline and John’s personal involvement at Boca Regional and other select organizations is testimony of paying it forward.”
