Hilburn Fund Receives $35,000 for Cancer Treatment

The Karen Hilburn Cancer Fund, a chapter of Mason General Hospital Foundation, was presented – for the sixth year in a row – with a check for $35,000 from the Charitable Trust of Margery Jones, a former Shelton resident and cancer survivor. Miss Jones left her estate to be donated to charitable non-profits. This is the sixth consecutive year the Hilburn Fund has been a major recipient. “We are so grateful for their continued support of our Fund,” said Fund Founder Karen Hilburn. “This donation helps Mason County residents that are underinsured or uninsured with their diagnoses and treatment of specific cancers." Pictured (below) with Mrs. Hilburn is Miss Jones’ niece, Betty Temple, who has made the donation every year in her aunt's memory.
