Huntsville, AL (WZDX) - The Boeing Company and the Boeing Employee Community Fund Board of Alabama are saving countless lives by committing $150,000 to support the American Cancer Society. This unprecedented gift will help fund two major projects.

$100,000 will go to kidney cancer research project in partnership with the American Cancer Society at UAB Hospital. 

Another $50,000 will fund and implement a five-county patient Transportation Assistance program within the next year.
