The Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation

The Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation, established as a national identity in 2014, is dedicated to changing the future of cancer by funding advanced, innovative research that treats the cancer while sparing the patient.

Cancer knows no boundaries of age, gender or race and as our population ages the number of survivors living with the after effects of cancer treatment rises.  Cancer care over the past 45 years has advanced in every area and more people are surviving than ever before.  Breakthroughs in our understanding of cancer is driving new treatments with less devastating side effects from highly toxic cancer treatments.

We will remain flexible in our thinking and constantly on the lookout for new and innovative ideas, so we can stay abreast of emerging trends in research with the potential to increase the impact of our funding.  Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation supports research that accelerates the advancement of less toxic treatments for isolated cancers and tumors with precision proton beam therapy and prevention of the spread of cancer with targeted immunotherapy drugs.

St. John's Children's Hospital

For 76 years, HSHS St. John’s Children’s Hospital has been a leader for care of preterm and critically-ill infants. St. John’s is the only Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) serving the central and southern portions of Illinois.  Neonatal services have grown substantially over the past decade and St. John’s cares for nearly 800 infants per year in its NICU, increasing almost 20% in 2017. Highly skilled care teams have delivered some of the best outcomes in the country, making St. John’s especially vital to our region.

Although the current NICU was a state-of-the-art 20 years ago, the needs of our most vulnerable populations have outgrown our capabilities.  Today, the standard of care is to provide a private, intimate NICU environment.  St. John’s is expanding and remodeling its NICU to three times the size of our current space. Our vision is a larger, family-centered unit with single patient rooms advantageous for infants to grow and thrive. This environment will allow families and physicians to openly discuss sensitive treatment information, and privacy for families to bond with their fragile infants.
