Mayo Clinic Health System has donated $6,500 to the Jonathan Zierdt Cancer Fund.

The gift will be used to fund the JZ Caring Box, which provides a specially designed care package for cancer patients, their families and caregivers. Each JZ Caring Box contains items to provide support and comfort, and access to information and resources. 

Since January, Mayo Clinic Health System has distributed nearly 800 Caring Boxes to area patients.
