MURRAY -- Steve and Vicki Simmons, owners of Multi-Skill Training Services, presented a donation of $12,500 to the Foundation at Murray-Calloway County Hospital in support of the Enduring Hope Campaign for the building of a new Regional Cancer Center. The donation by the Simmons family is recognized on plaques displayed in two rooms located in the new Mammography area located in the South Tower.

The Simmons family has a personal connection to the importance of mammograms and a cure for cancer. Vicki herself is a breast cancer survivor and was touched to sponsor a facility that will impact other women and men who suffer from breast cancer, as well as other cancers.

The Enduring Hope campaign has been launched to raise money for a new $12 million Regional Cancer Center which will bring the oncologists, social workers, pharmacy, and infusion area under one roof.

For more information on how you can support the building of a new Regional Cancer Center in Murray, please contact Keith Travis, chief philanthropy officer at 270-227-0253.
