Community members, med center employees and other notable Nebraskans share their thoughts on what the new Fred and Pamela Buffett Cancer Center will mean to Omaha, the state of Nebraska and the entire region. The cancer center will be named for Fred and Pamela Buffett in recognition of a gift from Pamela Buffett, through her foundation, The Rebecca Susan Buffett Foundation. Pamela Buffett's husband, Fred "Fritz" Buffett, died in 1997 after fighting kidney cancer. Fred Buffett and Warren Buffett were first cousins. Featured in the video are: Bruce Lauritzen, President of First National Bank and Board Chair of The Nebraska Medical Center, Mike Yanney, UNMC Campaign Committee Chair, Dr. Jim McClurg, former member of the NU Board of Regents, J.B.
