MU cancer researchers got a gift of $2.4 million.
Mizzou graduate Mark McAndrew gave the money to the University of Missouri to create the Frances T. McAndrew Endowed Chair in Oncology.
The gift will fund cancer research at the MU School of Medicine and Ellis Fischel Cancer Center.
McAndrew said the gift is in honor of his late aunt, Frances, who was a patient at the Ellis Fischel Cancer Center.
McAndrew said, â??I think it will help them go a long way into helping them build one of the leading cancer facilities in the country.â??
With this latest gift, McAndrew has given more than $3.8 million to MU.
