Donor Stories

Jean Ann Rushton is the Regent of the Joseph McDowell Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) in Hendersonville.

“We are a service organization and always want to support projects in our community,” says Rushton. “Several members of our chapter have faced cancer, either themselves or as caregivers. We wanted to give back to Pardee because we believe having a strong cancer center here in Henderson County is so important.”

Supporting the Cancer Center is the Rushton’s way of saying just how much she values this community.
