John and Thea Patterson

The Patterson Institute’s founding donors, John and Thea Patterson, personally experienced the role integrative cancer care can play in a patient’s cancer care, when it played a pivotal role in John’s eight-year journey with cancer. That experience led John and Thea to CCNM with an offer to work together to strengthen and expand the integration of cancer care across the country.


York Downs Chemists

Joining the Patterson’s in supporting the Patterson Institute is founding sponsor, York Downs Chemists, which has made a five-year pledge to support the Patterson Institute’s research, clinical care and continuing education programs.



Thanks to the support of Dr. Paul Hrkal, ND, medical director of Advanced Orthomolecular Research (AOR), a commitment of $150,000 is in place to extend financial assistance to students in every year of the program.
