Three years ago, Lawrence Matteson of Moline received a prostate cancer diagnosis for which he was successfully treated at the Mayo Clinic. Now, he and his wife, Marilyn, have shown their gratitude by donating $10 million to make the experience for the institution’s cancer patients even better. The Mattesons decided to grant the money to the well-known clinic’s new Proton Beam Therapy Program, feeling it would benefit the most people possible, Marilyn Matteson explained during an interview Monday afternoon at the couple’s home.
