Dansville teacher and respected high school coach Kyle J. Button lost his battle with colon cancer in January 2015 at the young age of 28. In his memory, his family, colleagues and friends put together a golf tournament to help raise money to support the construction of a new cancer treatment center on the campus of UR Medicine | Noyes Health. The new Ann and Carl Myers Cancer center became a reality earlier this year, in part because of that support.
This year, the Tournament proceeds will help the Foundation continue to build on the success of the cancer center capital campaign, and fund additional projects that, like the cancer center, impact direct patient care and promote the health and well-being of the greater Dansville community.
Projects will include renovation of the hospital’s third floor in-patient rooms to provide a more comfortable healing environment for patients and their caregivers, the purchase of new beds in the hospital’s intensive care unit, and the procurement of advanced digital scanning equipment to aid in diagnosis of cancer and other diseases.
