“We are honored to be a supporter of UF Health Cancer Center - Orlando Health and the first proton therapy center in Central Florida,” said Leonard Williams. “We miss Marjorie every day. She and I were married for 60 years and raised our sons here in Orlando. I know that she would be so proud of the gift, knowing it will help save lives.”

The Marjorie and Leonard Williams Center for Proton Therapy is located along Orange Avenue between Orlando Regional Medical Center and UF Health Cancer Center - Orlando Health. The 15,000 square foot facility consists of three floors – two above ground and one underground – in order to accommodate the MEVION S250 superconducting synchrocyclotron proton accelerator. Set to open next month, it is expected that it will treat as many as 26 patients a day with the new proton accelerator.
