UAMS said Wednesday that a member of its Cancer Institute Auxiliary, Stuart Cobb, was donating the money to support construction and services. 

The breast cancer center will be on the third floor of the Cancer Institute when completed.

Chancellor Dan Rahn said the gift will give Arkansans access to an advanced facility for mammography and other outpatient services.

The school says the breast cancer center will also have equipment for bone marrow biopsy, CT scanners and other radiology equipment.
