Killebrew-Thompson Memorial to Donate Landmark $1 Million to Cancer Research “We are overjoyed with the success of the 2017 KTM. The generosity our donors showed during the Auction Gala was astounding- it was truly something special to witness. We can’t thank them enough for making this landmark donation for cancer research possible,” said KTM Executive Director, Hannah Stauts.
Pediatric cancer research at one of our beneficiaries, St Luke's Mountain States Tumor Institute ... At age 10, Eleanor Pruitt was diagnosed with leukemia. A clinical trial at Mountain States Tumor Institute in Boise allowed Eleanor to receive cutting-edge treatment without having to leave her hometown and her support network of friends and family. She's now 16 and has been cancer-free for four years.
We frequently talk about St. Luke's MSTI, but this week we're chatting a bit about our other beneficiary, the University of Minnesota Masonic Cancer Center.⠀ ⠀ From pioneering the establishment of a new subspecialty of medical oncology in 1972 at the University of Minnesota to the world's first successful bone marrow transplant for malignant lymphoma in 1975, cancer research and treatment has a long and proud history at the University of Minnesota.⠀ ⠀ For more information click the link in our bio. . . . . #killebrewthompsonmemorial#ktmgolf#cancer#beneficiary#curecancer#takeaswingatcancer
