Exciting progress at the Mayo Clinic both medically and economically. If you were in downtown Rochester Thursday afternoon perhaps you noticed hundreds of people gathered around the ground breaking ceremony for the hospital's new cancer treatment center… Now, thanks to Richard O. Jacobson, and his $100 million donation Mayo is expanding its operations, this time for cancer patients. "137,000 people will be diagnosed with cancer each year that would benefit from proton beam therapy," explained Dr. Robert Foote, Chair of Mayo's Radiation Oncology.
