Published: Dec. 2, 2015

The Methodist Jennie Edmundson Cancer Center’s capital campaign to upgrade its radiation therapy equipment needs a boost from area Santas.

The Jennie Edmundson Hospital Foundation needs to raise almost $400,000 by Dec. 31 to qualify for a $250,000 challenge grant from the Suzanne and Walter Scott Foundation.

So far, a little more than $4.1 million has been raised toward the overall goal of $5 million, according to Tara Slevin, vice president of development and volunteer services.

Tim Johnson, reporter at the Daily Nonpareil, spoke with Tara Slevin about the challenge grant.
