Our Stories of Promise campaign begins with our community


Each of us has our reasons why we support Hoag. What ties us together is a passion for giving back on behalf of the community. See the impact your support can make through these stories of real Hoag patients, their real families, and our shared promise for the future.


The Hoag Promise, Our Campaign to Lead, Innovate & Transform, takes the best of what we do now and builds from there. You’ve never seen anything like this before from Hoag. For the first time in our history, the entire organization came together. We collectively identified ways to use philanthropy to accelerate innovation across the organization.


Every leader, from every area is engaged. Every institute and center is touched. Every program is enhanced. With a goal of $627 million, the promise of the comprehensive campaign is to drive Hoag’s continued clinical leadership, innovative spirit and transformative potential.


Danni S. – Jeffrey M. Carlton Heart & Vascular Institute Patient

“We are so fortunate to have Hoag in our community.”

In 2013, Danni experienced an episode of chest pain and visited Hoag’s emergency department. As part of her work-up, she received a coronary CT scan, which uncovered a thoracic aortic aneurysm – a bulge in the wall of her aorta, the largest blood vessel in the body. Left untreated or if not followed by a physician, a thoracic aortic aneurysm can result in an aortic dissection – a tear in the aortic wall, potentially diverting blood flow away from vital organs, such as the brain.

Jennifer Y. – Hoag Women’s Health Institute Patient

”I trusted the doctors at Hoag. It was the right thing to do.”

In 2011, Jennifer went from being a happily married woman expecting her first child to an ovarian cancer patient overnight. The elation she felt after years of trying to conceive was suddenly at risk as her world turned upside down. The questions, confusion and fear could have been overwhelming for someone facing two significant, life-changing events at the same time, but Jennifer said she quickly knew she was in good hands at Hoag.

Kim Y. – Hoag Family Cancer Institute Patient

“I just want everyone to know there’s hope.”

Kim wasn’t supposed to end up at Hoag, but after doctors at another hospital found a large cancerous mass in her rectum, she didn’t want to be treated anywhere else.

But Kim had a tough road ahead. The cancer had metastasized to her liver and she would need four surgeries over 14 months to remove it, along with aggressive chemotherapy treatment.
