Roswell Park Cancer Institute Celebrates 120 Years With A Time Capsule
Celebrating a hospital who has been saving lives for 120 years is definitely something worth mentioning. What is even cooler, is they are celebrating with a Time Capsule.
I think it is save to say that we all did a time capsule when we were in school at some point. You put in some pictures, or gadgets of things that people in the future may not even know existed. It is a neat way to remember something.
In Roswell's time capsule, staff, patients, and community members all put in get well wishes, and other special items inside the capsule.
CEO and President of the cancer center, Candace S. Johnson, PhD, said,
“Today, we mark a momentous occasion. We have been serving cancer patients in this community for 120 years. In that time, Roswell Park has remained steadfast to the revolutionary vision of its founder, Dr. Roswell Park, who set out to understand cancer, discover ways to treat it and put an end to the suffering it causes. Since 1898, our team has worked together to reduce cancer’s burden and give hope to so many.”
Though we may not be around in 100 years when it gets opened, it is still pretty neat to be part of history.
