Hospital makes big donation to cancer center


A cancer center is now $400 thousand richer, thanks to a donation from The Goshen Hospital and Healthcare Foundation.

A giant check was presented to the director of the IU Health Goshen Cancer Center Wednesday.

It's the largest gift that the hospital foundation has made in its 45 year history.

The donation was made possible by a couple from Middlebury who left the money to the foundation for cancer research.

"We have several opportunities as a specific result of having such a generous donation. So we're very grateful for the donation, and we plant to make the best us of it for quality of cancer research," says Roderich Schwartz with IU Health Goshen Cancer Center.

Some of those opportunities include organizing collaborative research with other cancer centers in the area.
