Major-league pitcher gives $1 million to Arkansas Children's Hospital

Arkansas Business Journal, November 24, 2010

Major League Baseball pitcher Cliff Lee and his wife Kristen on Tuesday announced a $1 million donation to Arkansas Children’s Hospital of Little Rock.

The Lees gave the money in honor of their 9-year-old son Jaxon, who battled cancer at the hospital as an infant.

The donation will fund an endowed chair in pediatric hematology and oncology named for Jaxon and Jaxon's doctor, Dr. Robert L. Saylors III. Saylors will be the inaugural chair holder.
