Munson Medical Center Kicks Off New Cancer Center Campaign

Posted: Updated:

Munson Medical Center kicked off a new campaign to get the public excited about building a new cancer center.

The new building will be called the Cowell Family Cancer Center. Currently, the center is just $2.5 million shy of reaching their fundraising goal of $17 million.

An event was held on Wednesday at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa to get donors excited about spreading the word and getting people in their communities excited.

Michigan State head basketball coach Tom Izzo was also at the event to help get people fired up.

Munson will fund the rest of the $23 million will cost to build the center.

If fundraising goes as planned they hope to break ground in Spring 2014.
