There's still work to be done at Roswell Park's newest building but when the doors open in June the science center will forever be named after one Western New Yorker.

"It's my pleasure to name the clinical science center the Scott Bieler Clinical Sciences Center," Roswell Park CEO PhD Candace Johnson said. 

Bieler is the President of West Herr Automotive group and has donated to Roswell Park for years. The partnership started when he donated a van to the cancer center years ago. Since, those donations have grown larger and larger.

"Sadly, nearly every family is touched with cancer. With the hope and the treatment and the research that Roswell provides they can hopefully make a difference in the lives of all the people that have touched me in such a profound way."

The amount of money donated will remain anonymous but Bieler says having his name on the building and helping so many people in the process is a dream come true. 

"I'm still pinching myself......It's not just a beautiful building, it is a beautiful structure no question, but it's the fact that what it represents...that's what I'm proud of."
