On the heels of Brad Pitt purchasing a very expensive piece of art for his collection, he uses his money to do some good. Doug Pitt announced the Brad Pitt family, Doug and Lisa Pitt and Rob and Julie Neal will donate $1 million to establish an endowment fund to pay cancer specialists at St. John’s. In honor of their mother, the center will be renamed St. John’s Jane Pitt Pediatric Cancer Center.
The endowment fund will also go toward building a new pediatric unit, a 10-bedroom hospital-based Ronald McDonald house and doubling the size of the neonatal and pediatric intensive care units. St. John’s is matching the $1 million donation to help fund the expansion.
Kudos to the Pitt family for the donation!
