Great Falls Clinic to use $1M donation to build housing for cancer patients

Great Falls (Mont.) Clinic received a $1 million gift from local philanthropist Carmen Poulsen to help construct free housing for cancer patients who travel to Great Falls for care, according to the Great Falls Tribune.

The $1 million donation is part of the clinic's $2.4 million capital campaign that will build a 12-unit housing facility that will provide free lodging to ease the stress for cancer patients and their families.

The new housing facility will be named Harold and Carmen Poulsen Legacy after the donor and her late husband.

"How do you even begin to describe something like this, when someone blows you out of the water with their generosity?" Vicki Newmiller, CEO of the Great Falls Clinic, told the Great Falls Tribune. "We had a vision and to have someone so important in the Great Falls Clinic community come forward to see that same vision — we're so thrilled."
