ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - A new cancer center in Aberdeen has received a $3.4 million donation for the most expensive piece of equipment in the $14.5 million facility.

The American News reports (https://bit.ly/23iXA06 ) that the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust is providing the money for the equipment used to pinpoint tumors. The trust was established by the late hotel and real estate baroness Leona Helmsley.

Officials unveiled the Don and Carmen Meyer Center of Excellence on Thursday. It’s named for legendary college basketball coach Don Meyer and his wife. Meyer was one of the winningest coaches in college basketball history. He died of cancer in May 2014.

The center will be home to the Avera Cancer Institute. Patient service is to begin next month.
