    Huntsman Sr. said he is comfortable that in 50 years the institute will expand along the entire mountainside with the research center extending to the south and the medial facilities continuing to grow up the hillside and north.

    Another great medical facility added to the great U of U campus with more to come. Add that to the recently announced $1.7 billion in private donations that were raised over the past seven years for the U by donors from all walks of life for a variety of projects and one begins to understand the scope of this great university and people like the Huntsmans, Marriotts and Eccles. Of course the LDS Church is always right there as well.

    It should come as no surprise to anyone why the Presidents of such prestigious universities like Stanford, Cal, Washington and UCLA wanted Utah as member of the prestious PAC 12 conference.

    DN Subscriber: You & I often disagree on a number of other topics, but on this issue, I could not agree with you more. Jon Huntsman and his family are truly inspirational people, and their positive impact on others is immeasurable.

    Mr. Huntsman, Your wife, you, and your family are incredible. Thank you for all you do for the people of Utah!

    If any of the media had covered the Cancer Clinic, put on by three former Utah football players (Wright, Cox, and Godfrey) Utahans would have known the proceeds went to exactly this cause! Great Utes as players and men!

    May God bless Jon Huntsman, Sr. and every single person connected with Huntsman Cancer Institute.

    They really do save lives, and work miracles. We are blessed that they have chosen to channel the fruits of their endeavors, or their working lives, into the field of treating cancer.

    People never know how much this place can mean until a loved one uses their facilities, and then you can never be grateful enough.
