Amazing what Mr. Huntsman has been able to do with that facility! It just keeps growing and getting better and better!

May God bless Jon M. Huntsman, Sr. for his magnificent vision, and unparalleled generosity in creating this superb facility, largely with his own earnings, and motivating other generous individuals and agencies to join in the effort.

Not only is this a great facility, the people who work there are unsurpassed in their fields, and their attitudes towards patients and genuine caring are a model for all health care professionals. To fully appreciate how good this place is, you need to experience it as a patient, although I hope you never have to.

Utah is blessed to have this wonderful facility. Indeed, the entire world is blessed to be able to benefit from what has been, is being, and will be done there.

Mr. Huntsman is deserving of even more praise for his driving vision and well thought out expansion plans which really are making a huge difference for those afflicted with these terrible diseases, and their families. His goal truly is not merely building an institute but curing cancer.

I pray that he succeeds! And thank him for ALL his efforts.

Thank you, each and every person who created, operates and grows the Huntsman Cancer Institutes.

Let's note that it is John Huntsman, not his son, Jon Huntsman, that is creating this.

Every family needs to join Mr. Huntsman in his quest to defeat cancer! Few can contribute what the Huntsmans have to eradicate this disease. (And of those few who could how many begin to be as generous for such a cause that would benefit all mankind?) All of us need to make a commitment to annually donate whatever we can to achieve this objective and to support and show our appreciation to the Huntsmans.
As reported, "The Huntsman Cancer Institute is a world leader in cancer genetics, Beckerle said. Its scientists have discovered the inherited susceptibility genes for colon cancer, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, head and neck cancer, and other forms of cancer, she said."
The Utah valley is unique in it's data base for genetic studies. This coupled with the University of Utah medical school, it's research facilities and the Huntsman Cancer Institute is one of the most outstanding combinations in the world for potential cancer breakthroughs! Let us all hope it happens. Here! Now!
