7,000 walkers and runners are expected to take part in the 9th Annual Miles for Moffitt, May 10th on USF’s Tampa campus. In its first eight years, the event has raised almost $1.5 million dollars, with all of the registration fees going directly to cancer research. University Beat on WUSF TV has a preview.
Also: Three years ago, Moffitt Cancer Center and Shriner’s Hospital teamed up to perform a surgery that gave then 8-year-old Josalyn Kaldenberg of Iowa the nation’s first expandable prosthetic arm. Now, Josalyn and her family have returned to Moffitt so surgeons can lengthen the device for the first time. University Beat on WUSF 89.7 speaks with Josalyn, her mother and her surgeon, Moffitt's Dr. Doug Letson, about the procedure and how successfully Josalyn has adjusted to life with the arm.
