Giving Back Hope

Donahue Developmental Therapeutics Unit offers hope for advanced cancer patients 

A generous donation from Dan and Kay Donahue has helped us develop the Donahue Developmental Therapeutics Unit, located at Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center. The center offers experimental treatments and medicines to advanced cancer patients, enabling them to access resources that would otherwise not be available locally.

“We have complete confidence in Novant Health as an organization and its sincere encouragement and support for our community. We have been patients since the beginning and see the kind of service it can deliver,” Kay said.

Dan and Kay first became familiar with Novant Health after it acquired Reynolds American Inc.’s health organization in the 1990s. Dan was an executive at Reynolds, and later he and Kay worked as attorneys for Womble Bond Dickenson law firm. “Both organizations support giving back to the community, and we have benefited so much from Novant Health’s wonderful service. We want to give back, and also encourage people to give not only for themselves but for others and future generations,” Kay said.

Thank you, Dan and Kay, for your generous gift, which will bring lifesaving treatment to cancer patients around our region.
