Seeking a Cure for Cancer
We’d like to eradicate cancer in the next decade. That’s why Minnesota Masonic Charities continues the long history of Masonic support for the University of Minnesota’s cancer patient care and research efforts, titled the Masonic Cancer Center.
Minnesota Masons and Stars have invested close to $100 million in the Masonic Cancer Center since they first helped build the Masonic Cancer Clinic in 1955, culminating in a $65 million pledge by Minnesota Masonic Charities in 2008.
Why focus so many resources on one Center? We believe that one day soon, the Masonic Cancer Center will stop the scourge of this deadly disease, and that’s not just wishful thinking.
Among the many organizations worldwide working toward advances, the Masonic Cancer Center was designated as one of 41 Comprehensive Cancer Centers nationwide by the National Cancer Institute.
The honor is more than an impressive title; it’s a federal seal of approval that signifies the depth and breadth of the research performed by MCC members.
