Cancer research fund to be named after late Sen. Andy Hill

February 7, 2018

Washington State’s cancer research fund will be named the Andy Hill Cancer Research Endowment. The measure was signed into law last week. The late state Sen. Hill died of cancer in October 2016. He was originally diagnosed with lung cancer — though he never smoked — and after cutting-edge, experimental treatment he was found to be cancer-free in 2009. He was elected to the state Senate in 2010 in the 45th District and became chief budget writer and negotiator, remaining cancer-free until 2016. Sen. Hill worked to create the cancer research endowment authority in 2015, which provides and directs funding for cancer research projects. Read more from the Kirkland Reporter. (Tim Pfarr)
