DANSVILLE – Carl Myers, who with his wife Ann became the lead donor for one of western New York’s biggest and best cancer centers, says that the $2 million donation is the best feeling of his life.
A gracious crowd including Noyes CEO Amy Pollard, regional medical professionals, Senator Catherine Young and Assemblyman Joe Errigo deeply thanked the Myers for their $2 million donation, which got the cancer center construction project rolling in 2015.
“You do many things in life but this is the one thing I’ve done that feels the greatest,” said Carl Myers.
Local communities raised an additional million dollars. Dozens of fundraisers over the past two years have donated to make this cancer center a reality.
During Saturday’s live stream, speakers unveiled a permanent donor wall that names the dozens of generous people and organizations whose donations made the cancer center a reality.
It was two years ago that Noyes announced that they would be formally partnering with UR Medicine’s Wilmot Cancer Institute, Jones Memorial Hospital, and UR Medicine Radiation Oncology in Hornell to bring a state-of-the-art cancer treatment facility to Genesee Valley families.
“Ann and Carl Meyers, in what seemed like the blink of an eye, committed to being the lead donors with a $2 million donation,” said Noyes CEO Amy Pollard on the live stream.
