What is Legacy?

legacy_71718

Leaving a legacy is about your impact on the world. Just as you have devoted your life to radiation oncology and the care of cancer patients, you can make a difference on the future of radiation oncology and the care of those patients by making a planned gift to the Radiation Oncology Institute (ROI).

“Legacy is about life and living. It's about learning from the past, living in the present, and building for the future,” quoting Susan V. Bosak of the Legacy Project.

“At the beginning, we are what we are given. By mid-life, as we make our way in the world, we come to understand that we can be what we have been given and what we can create. Toward the end of life, we must understand that we must give to others, so that when we leave this world we are what we have been given, have created, and have passed on,” says Ms. Bosak.

Your life’s work has been radiation oncology and you have constantly strived to make life better for cancer patients. By leaving a legacy with a planned gift to the Radiation Oncology Institute, you can continue to support that endeavor by supporting research in radiation oncology. Your gift will help define the future of research to improve the outcomes of the patients for whom you have cared during your lifetime.

Hope does not extinguish suffering but sustains the belief that there can be an end to it, if not in your own life, then in the future. Leaving a legacy through a gift in your will or by naming the Radiation Oncology Institute as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or an insurance policy is a way to express hope for the future and the advancements in radiation oncology that will help lessen and eventually end the pain and suffering of cancer patients.

Our desire to help make the future a little bit better than the past leads us to want to leave a legacy. Leaving a legacy to ROI is leaving an impact on the field of radiation oncology.

Legacy is very much about life and living.
