Roslyn and Leonard Stoler Gift $25 million to University of Maryland Greenbaum Comprehensive Cancer Center
Largest-Ever Single Philanthropic Gift to UMMC to Fund State-of-the-Art Building to Enhance Inpatient and Outpatient Cancer Care
Baltimore-area businessman Leonard Stoler and his wife, Roslyn, have given a $25 million gift to help fund a major expansion of the University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center (UMGCCC).
Their generous gift is the largest philanthropic donation in the history of the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC). The funds will enable UMGCCC to provide the most technologically advanced, integrated care to cancer patients locally, regionally and nationally, and position the center to meet the escalating demands for cancer care well into the future. The UMGCCC is one of only 49 National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated comprehensive cancer centers in the United States. It is a joint entity of UMMC and the UMSOM.
The Stolers are longtime supporters of UMGCCC; their granddaughter Lindsay was successfully treated for cancer at UMMC 26 years ago when she was 4. The couple praised the doctors, nurses and staff at the cancer center for not only providing excellent medical treatment but also for their dedication and compassionate, caring attitude. "When people go there, they come back and tell us how well they're treated. They're not just taking care of patients, they're caring for them," Mrs. Stoler says.
