The Roy and Patricia Disney Family Cancer Center at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center opened in February. The $55 million, four-floor outpatient facility is located in Burbank, CA. and provides outpatient chemo, radiation and other therapies. The facility specializes in care for adolescent and young adult cancer patients, a population often underserved. The cancer center was primarily funded by donations from the entertainment industry, local business, physicians, employees of Providence and the community. However, the biggest donation -- $10 million-- came from Roy E. and Patricia Disney. Roy E. Disney, nephew of the late Walt Disney, died of cancer in 2009.
