Letter: Helping fight cancer? Call Huntsman
First Published Apr 24 2014 02:54 pm • Last Updated Apr 24 2014 04:30 pm

Your warning on telephone calls from charities (April 23) is good, but it does not go far enough.

Hanging up on these callers, most of which pay no attention to "do not call" lists, is probably the best response. Alternatively, request a mailed solicitation to permit you to do a Better Business Bureau check to determine whether it is a legitimate organization. Many are not.

For those wishing to make a donation for dealing with cancer, Utah is blessed with Salt Lake City’s Huntsman Cancer Institute, a world class clinical and research facility.
