 The Olympic Medical Center Foundation has announced plans to conduct a capital campaign to expand the OMC Cancer Center, and has received a lead gift of $100,000 from Bill and Esther Littlejohn of Sequim towards that effort.

The donation was part of fundraising efforts for the Foundation's annual Harvest of Hope fundraising event, which raised a record $213,000 towards cancer care and the expansion Saturday night at Sunland Golf and Country Club.

"It is imperative that we expand the Center," said Foundation President Phil Walker. "A successful capital campaign will ensure that we will be able to expand to meet the increased number of patients who will need treatment in the future.

"We made this gift because we think the cancer center expansion is extremely important to the community," Littlejohn said. "I've had so many people tell me how much they appreciate the OMC Cancer Center, as they provide world class care. Also, patients don't have to travel back and forth to Seattle when they're really sick," he continued.

In addition to monies being raised for the cancer center expansion, attendees also contributed $30,000 to fund the Cancer Center's Patient Navigator program, which provides basic living expenses for low income cancer patients. The evening featured food prepared by well-known local chef Kathryn Kitts from The Sweet Beginning Café and wine from Harbinger Winery from Port Angeles.


The number of patient visits at the Cancer Center has grown by 157 percent over the last 10 years, and even more growth is expected in the future. According to the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the number of new cancer cases in the U.S. will increase by 45 percent.

"Due to people living longer and an aging baby boomer population, the number of incidents of cancer will rise," said OMC CEO Eric Lewis.

The expansion will include:

·Additional clinical exam space;

·An expansion of the pharmacy;

·More infusion and chair space; and

·An education space that will allow for physicians and staff to explain the short and long term effects to patients and support them during difficult emotional times

"We hope that many local people will become a part of this fundraising effort," said Littlejohn, who also has agreed to be the chairman of the expansion campaign.

"It's an opportunity for people to leave a lasting legacy, and 100 percent of the monies raised will go towards the project. No funds will be used for administrative or fundraising costs. There will also be naming rights opportunities."

Lewis said that the expansion will make the cancer center viable for the long term, and that it will enable OMC to recruit and retain the best physicians and other cancer professionals.

"It will literally save people's lives," he said.
