(1851-1926), an American nurse who was a daughter of Nathaniel Hawthorne. She established a home in New York for patients with incurable cancer, mostly those who were poor and not accepted in hospitals because of the nature of their disease. Later she became a member of the Third Order of St. Dominic and founded the order of sisters called Servants of Relief for Incurable Cancer, which was received into the Third Order of St. Dominic in 1899. The order founded hospitals wherever there was sufficient need and offered quality care to their patients.
