Minnesota Masonic Cancer Center
I would like to inform all the brethren in the different places of our world of what the gift to the University of Minnesota means in the fight against Cancer. Minnesota Masonic Charities has pledged $ 65 million over the next 15 years to try to find a cure. The Star Tribune reports that, as research money diminishes, the gift could go to finding new untested treatments which the National Institute of Health don't want to try. The Minnesota Masonic Cancer Center is doing new research into the study of Cancer prevention and treatment. The Minnesota Masonic Charities is also raising $10 million to help build a new building for the Masonic Cancer Center through its Partners for Life. For me, this is one of the best programs I have been a part of and the benevolence of our gentle Craft is truly amazing and heartwarming.
