When Brigitte Ducote first made the decision to get a lung cancer screening at Mary Bird Perkins – Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center
Mary Bird Perkins has served the needs of patients throughout the communities we serve for 50 years. Thanks to generous community support, we are able to provide patients with leading-edge treatments and technologies to ensure the best care possible. Throughout southeast Louisiana and southwest Mississippi, you will find our radiation facilities, as well as comprehensive cancer centers made possible through valuable hospital partnerships.
Celebrate with us throughout 2021 as we honor and pay tribute to our supporters, patients, team members and physicians who have been a part of our history, and as we continue to propel cancer care forward for everyone who needs us.
Community giving and generosity has always fueled Mary Bird Cancer Center and 2021 marks not only 50 years of providing comprehensive care to cancer patients, but also 50 years of generous philanthropic support from individuals, corporations, schools and many others. Be a game changer and help us celebrate this milestone of people helping people!
Generous community support has fueled our growth over the last 50 years, and through the Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Foundation, donors can help secure the future of cancer care. Watch Dr. Charles Wood, radiation oncologist, discuss why leaving a legacy, in addition to his clinical contributions, is so important and personal to him.

The Cancer Center has stayed in the forefront of cancer care in our community for the past 50 years. We are proud to be the first and only cancer center in the state to be awarded a prestigious accreditation, the National Accreditation Program for Rectal Cancer. Rectal cancer is the 3rd most common cancer in Louisiana and we are committed to improve survivorship and lesson the burden of cancer for patients across our region.
