Inspirational Giving: Volunteer Betty Bott's Gifts Strengthen Cancer Care

When Betty Bott’s husband, Charles, was treated for cancer at Holy Redeemer Hospital, the staff’s care and compassion inspired her. “You could just feel the spirit,” Betty said. “There’s a genuine caring there.”

After Charles’s cancer journey ended, Betty chose to share her time as a volunteer for Redeemer Health. She’s continued to do so for 30 years, warmly greeting others as a receptionist at the hospital front desk, assisting women coming in for mammograms, serving on the Drueding Center Auxiliary, and other roles whenever asked.

Betty also is one of the most philanthropic and consistent donors to the Redeemer Health system, building an amazing legacy — one she believes Charles would admire. Her support includes a transformational gift to support the lifesaving work at our cancer center.

“I’ve seen many advancements in medicine over the years,” Betty said. “I feel that it is important to keep the progress and innovations available for all patients.”

“Betty’s tremendous generosity has been crucial to helping our cancer program grow,” said Donna Miller, RN, MSN, CCCTM, CNML, Administrative Director, Redeemer Health in partnership with MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper.

“The team we’ve put together in the cancer center is amazing!” said William L. Scarlett, DO, FACS, FACOS, MHCM, Executive Director, Redeemer Health in partnership with MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper. “Their compassion and concern for our patients impresses me every day.”

“I was recently invited to hear about the direction of the cancer center,” Betty said. “What I learned that day made my heart so happy. As a people person myself, I was thrilled to learn that a dedicated social worker, a financial aid counselor and more nurse navigators were added to the staff to offer such meaningful support to patients and families.”

“It is really mind boggling to know that my gifts have touched the lives and hearts of so many others,” adds Betty. “I just think of it as something I should do.”
