Nancy Anne Pecora

Nancy Pecora was a former nurse at St. Joseph’s Healthcare and also worked as a critical care nurse in the ICU at the Greater Niagara General Hospital. She was very supportive of St. Joseph’s Hospital and a patient of the McMaster Institute of Urology for 10 years.

Nancy was a very grateful patient for all of the care she received through St. Joseph’s Hospital and the McMaster Institute of Urology, and as a staunch supporter she left her estate to the St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation in support of Kidney Cancer research.

The McMaster - St. Joseph’s Healthcare Kidney Cancer Centre of Excellence as well as the St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation are proud to honor Nancy Pecora’s faithful support and the lasting legacy she has made to enhance the care received by future kidney cancer patients treated here.

On behalf of St. Joseph's Health Care we would like to thank the Menceles Family for their generous donation.
