                        Sharing the gift of health.

                        That is what Aurora St. Luke’s Philanthropy is all about. Since joining the Aurora
                        St. Luke’s Medical Center team this past August, I’ve had the great pleasure to
                        meet many of you, our donors, who have shared the gift of health with our patients
                        and their families through your generous support of Aurora St. Luke’s.

Mary O’Brien            It’s been my privilege to hear many stories chronicling our donors’ health care
Administrative          journeys and the excellent care that inspired them to share the gift of health
Officer                 with others. In this issue of Spirit magazine, we share a number of these stories
                        with you.

You will read about life challenges that brought Bob James to Aurora St. Luke’s for major medical
treatment not once, but twice, and how in their gratitude, Bob and his wife Pauline have twice made
generous gifts to Aurora St. Luke’s. You will also have the opportunity to read about how fate brought
patients David Rubin and Ken Mills to Aurora St. Luke’s, and how gratitude has kept them connected,
as both of them have shared the gift of health in their own special way.

And finally, it’s my great pleasure to share exciting news about the much-anticipated Rooftop Healing
Garden that will grace the terraces on the seventh and eighth floors of the Heart Care Center & Patient
Tower. The Rooftop Healing Garden will be a special place for many reasons, and the stories that will
emerge from every corner of its landscape through its many naming opportunities will certainly be its
most inspiring feature. On page 14, we share a few of the personal stories behind gifts already made to
support this very exciting project.

I would like to sincerely thank you for your support of Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center. By sharing the
gift of health with others, you play a very important role in our efforts to constantly find better ways to
provide patient care.

With appreciation,

Mary O’Brien

     “We were able to give back to St. Luke’s
      for the great care we have received while
      taking care of each other at the same time.”
        Robert and Olive Leubke made a generous gift to Aurora
        St. Luke’s Medical Center in the form of a Charitable Gift
        Annuity. They were able to give back to the place that had
        become very dear to them, while receiving an income for
        themselves in return. While their gift will help to support Aurora
        St. Luke’s mission to find better ways to treat patients, they are
        also taking care of each other by creating a guaranteed source of
        income that neither of them will outlive.

        To find out more about making a gift to Aurora St. Luke’s through
        a Charitable Gift Annuity, please contact Stuart Merritt at
