Dr. Jay Brooks, System Vice Chair of Hematology & Oncology at Ochsner Medical Complex - The Grove is a philanthropist himself and thoroughly understands the transformative power of philanthropy. He remains eager to raise funds for the Baton Rouge Cancer Center and was integral in the creation of the Baton Rouge Cancer Center Case for Support, which highlights four major funds important to the oncology department’s philanthropic needs. Were it not for Dr. Brooks, we would not have been successful in securing the largest single donation to the Baton Rouge region in 2019! A widow of one of his patients donated $250,000. Although her husband passed away from his rare cancer, Dr. Brooks made sure that this donor felt that the department valued her and her late husband by supporting and promoting her Art Therapy program, which was dedicated in her husband’s memory.
