What People Are Saying
“We are in the Kansas Masonic Cancer Research Institute building. We have five floors of basic cancer researchers. The Kansas Masonic Foundation was an original investor, like the family and friends who believed in us and got us going. One of the initial programs was to take our cancer prevention and screening efforts out into the community by partnering with local lodges. It’s been huge.”Dr. Roy Jensen, Director Kansas Masonic Cancer Research Institute
“My name is Vicki, and I am a cancer survivor. I went to the screening that the Masons had in our local downtown square. I had a funny freckle on my arm, so I asked the doctor to look at that. She said I needed to get it checked. I made an appointment with a dermatologist, they looked at it and said it needed to be biopsied. I got a call from my dermatologist, and he told me that it was melanoma cancer. The fact that they caught it so early— they probably saved my life.”Vicki Hay Melanoma Cancer Survivor
“Lodges do all the hard work. They identify a time, set up the location, and partner with the community, and we get to come in and provide the screenings.”Hope Krebil, Executive Director Midwest Cancer Alliance
