The Gift of Grain

Save Lives by Sharing Your Grain Cancer has impacted nearly everyone. 1,055 Iowans in our service area alone are likely to hear “You have cancer” for the first time in 2015. Jennie Edmundson Foundation wants to improve their odds of restored health.

The Jennie Edmundson Foundation is raising $5 million to purchase a new TrueBeam linear accelerator for Methodist Jennie Edmundson Cancer Center. The new accelerator will offer more precise radiation delivery and additional treatment options not possible with our current machine.
