The Honorable Edward M. Kennedy, Scientists Mina J. Bissell and Susan Band Horwitz, and Philanthropist Jon M. Huntsman to Receive American Cancer Society Highest Honor for Outstanding Contributions to Cancer Fight
Date:11/21/2008

ts -- will receive the Society's Medal of Honor for Cancer Philanthropy. Mr. Huntsman and his wife, Karen, have raised or personally contributed over $600 million to the fight against cancer. In 1995, the Huntsman family joined in an unparalleled scientific quest to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer at its source by donating $100 million to establish the Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah. In 2000, Huntsman pledged an additional $125 million to fund ongoing research and to construct a Clinical Research Hospital adjacent to the Institute. A groundbreaking event in October of this year launched the expansion of the Huntsman Cancer Hospital, which will be twice its current size upon the project's completion in 2011. Toward completion of this expansion, Mr. Huntsman donated or raised another $125 million. In addition to these contributions, Mr. Huntsman regularly visits patients while they receive chemotherapy.

These donations, along with subsequent gifts and grants, have helped the Huntsman Cancer Institute build a team of world-renowned specialists and provide treatment services unmatched in the region and numbered among the best in America. A survivor of three types of cancer himself, Huntsman lost his mother, father and stepmother to the disease.

Other notable gifts include Huntsman's donation of over $50 million to the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School of Business, more than $100 million to the University of Utah, and many more millions to colleges and universities throughout Utah and Idaho. In 2000, Time magazine listed Huntsman as the sixth most generous philanthropist in the United States, and the Chronicle of Philanthropy's 2007 list of largest donors listed Mr. Huntsman in second place. One of the 10 most influential Utahns of the 20th century, he donated $53 million to help rebuild the country of Armenia after the devastating 1988 earthquake. M
