impactCancer Summer 2014
The work we do at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute continues to astound me. Our researchers and physicians work tirelessly to provide the best care possible and find new and improved treatments for our patients.
And we know we are not alone in these efforts. Much of our work is supported and funded by generous philanthropic donors who make their gifts in appreciation of the care that they or their loved ones have received at the OSUCCC – James. These grateful patients and their gifts are crucial to our continued success.
I’ve had the opportunity to meet many of them, and in this edition of impactCancer, I’m excited to share a few of their stories. You’ll read about people like Judy Hileman, who traveled from Kansas to The James to receive treatment for her cancer, and Charles Ruma, whose company Virginia Homes, uses the proceeds from a unique “Home for Hope” to benefit The James.
Whether you are grateful for The James as a patient, relative or community member, know that our researchers and physicians are just as grateful for you.
