SALT LAKE CITY, UT—Today, doTERRA International announced a $5 million donation to Huntsman Cancer Foundation (HCF) at its annual global convention. The gift will support a proposed major building expansion of Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) at the University of Utah (U of U).

HCI CEO Mary Beckerle then spoke to over 30,000 attendees about the Institute’s research and specialized care for patients’ minds, bodies, and spirits before, during, and after cancer treatment.
“We are honored to partner with the Huntsman Cancer Institute in creating the Center for Comprehensive Care and Women’s Cancers. We have long admired the HCI’s visionary leadership in pursuing groundbreaking cancer research, patient first procedures, and innovative methods to mitigate the suffering caused by cancer. The integrity found in this world-renowned facility is seen at every level of its care and research,” said Dr. David Hill, doTERRA’s founding executive, Chief Medical Officer and Chairman, Scientific Advisory Committee. “We look forward to a day when cancer has been eradicated, but until then, we will actively support great institutions like Huntsman Cancer Institute.”
