Bakersfield Californian

A Bakersfield family will donate $1 million to San Joaquin Community Hospital’s new cancer center, leaving just $4 million left to raise before it opens next fall.

The family’s announcement of the gift Tuesday will kick off the center’s fundraising efforts.

“They had heard about us wanting to do a cancer center and they came to us and said, ‘We want to be involved,’”said Jarrod McNaughton, SJCH vice president of marketing and development.
