Inova Schar Cancer Institute 2019 Gratitude Report

Inova Schar Cancer Institute recently marked the one-year anniversary of the opening of its state-of-the-art flagship facility in Fairfax. This facility and the world-class cancer care we provide for more than 40,000 patients and their families across the Inova system are possible because of the extraordinary generosity of thousands of donors across our region. Philanthropy is what fuels Inova’s ability to recruit and retain the best doctors, clinicians and nurses in the nation;  to drive innovation and leading edge treatment; to comfort, encourage and inspire through the arts; to provide critical psychosocial support and integrative oncology programs; and to relieve vulnerable patients of the financial burdens of cancer care. Our strengths and achievements are the results of a shared vision with so many in our community. We invite you to learn more about Inova Schar Cancer Institute in our 2019 Gratitude Report.

Caryl Byrnes and the Women in Need Fund

Caryl Byrnes was determined to win her fight against cancer. In the end, her cancer didn’t play fair, which can often be the case. Caryl, however, refused defeat without a fight. She would claim victory and her triumph would benefit hundreds of women. In partnership with her oncologist Dr. Ruchi Garg, and Gynecology Oncology Patient Navigator Christine Bloom, they established the Women in Need (WIN) Fund.

Caryl and her family generously seeded the WIN Fund and, in less than two years, the fund has raised more than $100,000 to help women less fortunate than Caryl fight and win their battles with cancer.

The school’s dedicated staff wipes away the stigma associated with behavioral disorders and immerses the children in a safe, nurturing learning environment that helps students transform and lead happy and productive lives.

That is why graduates and their families have a desire to see Inova Kellar School remain a valuable resource for our community’s youth.
