"When my father passed away we wanted to do something in his memory. Both my parents had moved from the Midwest to Tucson, and my mom and I felt that Tucson had become our home. My dad was a doctor and so we thought it would be a great idea to give to the medical school and help support doctors who want to work in rural areas, which is what my dad wanted to do but wasn’t able to. Arizona has so many rural areas. We wanted help to make sure those areas have the resources they need."
