This has become evident as we remember two thoughtful and generous members of the Dr. F. H. McLeod Legacy Society...Betty-Ann Darby and Dwight Jenkinson. While already members of the Society for endowed scholarships, both Betty-Ann and Dwight made the decision to also use their estates to perpetuate the care they valued during their lives.
Upon Betty-Ann's passing in 2013, the McLeod Foundation was notified that once again Betty-Ann had expressed her devotion to McLeod Health. The McLeod Foundation was included in her will as a partial residual heir. The Darby Family legacy will continue to positively impact the health of our region through Betty-Ann's thoughtful planning.
As Dwight Jenkinson was fighting his own battle with cancer, he was moved by a story about a cancer patient who was receiving transportation assistance. He took action to specifically request that a portion of his retirement account be used to fund the L.I.F.T. program. His gift is already being used to ensure that patients facing a cancer diagnosis are able to receive their life-saving treatments.
