St. Charles Health System has contributed 8 million and now they're asking for the public's help with the remaining 5 million.
Lisa Dobey, Executive Director of the St. Charles Foundatin says we are entering the public phase.
"We're half way. We're trying to raise 5.7 million but we still have half way to go. So we're encouraging folks to reach into their pocket, whether for two dolalrs of two million to help friends and family who might be facing cancer."
A portion of the proceeds from the Annual St Charles Foundation "Saints Gala " on November 1st at the Riverhouse, will go to support the Cancer Center.
The new facility is slated to be done next summer.
