McALLEN, Texas – City of McAllen Mayor Javier Villalobos and the McAllen City Commissioners recently approved a one million dollar donation to the University of Texas-RGV for the development of a cancer research center in the region.  The donation will be added to the funding recently approved by the UT System Board of Regents for this endeavor. 

“I would like to congratulate UTRGV President Dr. Bailey for his leadership in helping to make a cancer research center in the Rio Grande Valley a reality,” said Mayor Villalobos.  “This research institute will have a tremendous and positive impact on the health and well-being of the entire region, opening up our community to not only having medical students trained here in a medically underserved area, but also, allowing our residents the opportunity to be a part of cancer medical research, helping to treat many of the illnesses that plague this region.  The City of McAllen is proud to make this donation for development of this cancer research center.”
