Sioux Falls hospital adds cancer fighting technology

Avera McKennan Hospital will be the first facility in the Upper Midwest to use a machine that allows oncologists to fire electron beams at surrounding cancer cells immediately after removing a tumor with conventional surgery.

As reported in today's Argus Leader, the machine is made possible by a $2,500,000 gfit from the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust.
