LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A new cancer resource center is dedicated in southern Indiana.

The center in Jeffersonville is named after a former patient and major donor, Pat Harrison.

The Norton Cancer Institute center will have a full-time nursing and support staff. It's housed in a extensively-renovated historic building with a library, group meeting areas and indoor and outdoor meditation spaces.

"It's for people that have gone through it, that need prosthesis, that need meditation, that need wigs," said Pat Harrison, a former patient and major donor. "What they had was just not acceptable, and now we have it. And it's free."

Funding for the center comes mostly from community support and gifts to the Norton Healthcare Foundation. The Norton Cancer Institute also operates three resource centers in Louisville.
