Roswell Park marks 120 years with time capsule

The Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center is celebrating its 120th anniversary by preserving time.

Over the past few weeks, members of the community have been placing special items and messages in a time capsule.  The final items, one of which is a WKBW TV microphone flag,  were placed in the capsule on Wednesday, April 25th.  The capsule has now been sealed and enclosed for future generations to discover 100 years from now.

Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center is a community united by the drive to eliminate cancer's grip on humanity by unlocking its secrets through personalized approaches and unleashing the healing power of hope. Founded by Dr. Roswell Park in 1898, it is the only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center in Upstate New York.
