$2.5 million Gift for Patient Support at KU Hospital

Apr 30, 2013

A Leawood couple has donated $2.5 million to expand a patient-support program at the University of Kansas Cancer Center.

A cancer diagnosis can be a bewildering event.  Having a trained professional to guide the way can make a huge difference.  That’s why Tom and Teresa Walsh are putting up the money to fund five, experienced nurse navigators at the KU Cancer Center.

“You have somebody with you to hold your hand, kind of help you along the way.  There’s so many questions, and you’re so scared in the beginning,” says Teresa Walsh.
