Britney Spears Opens Cancer Facility In Vegas
With only a handful of shows left until her Las Vegas residency wraps up, it's nice to see that Britney Spears' time in Sin City has had an impact outside of The Strip.
Last weekend, the pop star launched the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation's Britney Spears Campus.
Spears, who has been a Las Vegas staple since launching her Piece of Me residency in 2013, helped make the campus a reality.
"I'm just really excited to be standing here for our new NCCF campus. We started fundraising in 2014 and we've raised $1 million to build this amazing facility to support the kids and the families everywhere," she said. "I'm so thankful to everyone for their generosity in making this a reality and making this happen.”
The Britney Spears Campus is a 16,000 square-foot facility combining more than 45 pediatric and adult services and will feature a healing arts services program called The Caring Place that will double in size and extend service hours.
"We can't thank Britney enough being able to do this. Our dream for many, many years has been to be able to have one one building that all of our 45 programs can come together in one place. And that we are able to to today," NCCF CEO Jeff Gordon said. "And that doesn't happen without someone like Britney Spears.”
