Dr. James M. Slater Bronze Portrait Bust, Pioneered Proton Therapy for the Treatment of Cancer
“Hi Paula, The bust looks absolutely amazing! We received the pedestal last week and the bronze bust of Dr. Slater with granite base yesterday and had it all set up today. Everyone who has seen it is really impressed! We are just thrilled with how beautiful it turned out!
Thank you for all your hard work. We will want to have more made up when we open new centers, so please keep the mold like we talked about. Thank you so so much!”
