Hardin Co. students make donation to James Graham Brown Cancer Center
Students learn about cancer, tour research labs during visit
Student Rebecca MacKey had the opportunity to work with Lacey McNally, Ph.D., assistant professor in the U of L Department of Medicine's Division of Medical Oncology & Hematology, while Central Hardin County High School Principal Tim Isaacs looked on.
The group presented a check to U of L President James Ramsey and Brown Cancer Center director Donald Miller, M.D., Ph.D., for $1,980 on Jan. 11.
Students raised the funds through breast cancer awareness t-shirt sales, a raffle and other donations.
As part of their trip to present the donation, about 20 students also heard about how cancer forms and the history of cancer treatment prior to touring research labs at U of L.
