One Estate Gift


When former Greensboro, N.C., resident Doris Stormyr Anderson died in 2013 at age 94, she designated funds in her estate plan to support cancer research at multiple academic medical centers in North Carolina.

That included Wake Forest Baptist, which received $2.8 million from her estate for its Comprehensive Cancer Center. Her gift was combined with money from the Discovery Fund, which includes contributions from hundreds of donors who give in support of the Comprehensive Cancer Center each year, to create three new research professorships.

These professorships hold the promise of creating better treatments and outcomes for people she will never know. Those will become part of her legacy.
