Cancer survivor gives $20 million gift to University of Kansas Hospital

Kansas City Star, October 16, 2008

Philanthropist and civic leader Annette Bloch has announced a $20 million gift to the University of Kansas Hospital. The widow of H&R Block co-founder Richard Bloch said she had experienced the hospital's "skill and compassion" firsthand when she was treated there earlier this year for breast cancer. Bloch also said she hoped the gift would help boost the Kansas City area's efforts to obtain National Cancer Institute designation.
