New Childhood Cancer Research Center

    John Huntsman, founder of the Huntsman Corporation, has announced the creation of a new childhood cancer research center, right here in Salt Lake City.  The center will study childhood cancer's many facets, including sibling risk, long term effects and new treatments.  So far, $100 million have been gathered, $50 million from Huntsman himself to build the "Primary Children's and Family Research Center."
   I am super stoked for this new center.  Not only is this a great step towards researching and curing childhood cancer, but it's literally happening in my backyard, less than a mile from where I live.  This is change, this is a huge step towards ending childhood cancer.
