‘Tear Down Cancer’ wall-writing event continues until 5 p.m.

Dr. Samir N. Khleif

The Georgia Cancer Center at Augusta University is celebrating its expansion by asking everyone with a cancer story to come write on its walls.

Soon demolition will begin on the Georgia Cancer Center’s M. Bert Storey Research building – the first step in a project that will see a 72,000 square-foot expansion to the building and construction of a three-story elevated connector bridging the gap between the Cancer Center’s research and clinical facilities.

But before the walls come tumbling down, the Augusta University family is invited to “Tear Down Cancer” by writing cancer stories on the walls of its conference room on the first floor of the research building. The walls will be photographed, documented and saved for posterity before demolition begins.

The event will kick off at 3 p.m. Thursday, May 12, and the conference room will be open for signing until 5 p.m. Friday.
