Donor and Patient Stories

We're lucky that our donors are committed to making a major difference. While there are many ways to contribute to Adventist Health Bakersfield, quality health care cannot exist without major financial support.

Donor Stories

"Like so many other people, cancer has impacted our family and friends. We know how difficult it can be to wage a war against such a devastating disease, especially when travel to another city is involved, which is why we were honored to help bring The AIS Cancer Center to this great community. We feel strongly that the people here deserve this level of cancer care close to home — supporting this cause was not only a good fit for our family, it was the perfect fit."
–Brad & Elizabeth Peters

"Too many of us here have been affected by cancer and, in some way, we are trying to do our part to help (meet) this growing need."
–Robert Rice, Advanced Industrial Services

Patient Stories

"I cannot say enough about how grateful and blessed I am to have had the wonderful staff and care that I did at Adventist Health Bakersfield. If the medical staff had not been so conscientious, I could have easily been sent home and would have had a fatal heart attack. Adventist Health Bakersfield literally saved, and then changed my life."
–Dawn Jackson
