Sylvia & George Rountree
Sylvia and George Rountree of Wilmington, NC have a long family history of breast cancer. They are determined to provide the resources needed to develop innovative therapies and leading edge treatments for those suffering from this dreaded disease.
Understanding first hand the rigors of chemotherapy, they decided to make a gift of $50,000 to support the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and the new N.C. Cancer Hospital.
In recognition of their generosity, one of the private infusion rooms in the new hospital will be named in their honor. The adult infusion center triples the current capacity and features 58 private and semi-private infusion stations. There are 3 completely private infusion rooms designed for those patients who need special attention due to their health status or physical needs.
