(Salt Lake City-AP) -- An Arizona businessman is pledging 10 (m) million dollars to the Huntsman Cancer Foundation.
Ira Fulton's gift will go to support cancer research and care at the Huntsman Cancer Institute, whose Hunstman Cancer Hospital will be dedicated today.
The Phoenix resident is president and chief executive officer of Fulton Homes and was ranked 42nd last year in Business Week magazine's Top 50 philanthropists in the U-S.
Last week, Utah Jazz owner Larry H. Miller also pledged a 10 (m) million dollar donation.
The Huntsman Cancer Hospital that's being dedicated today will house all oncology services for the University of Utah Health Sciences Center and will be the only cancer specialty hospital in the Intermountain West.
