$7 million dollars, that's the amount of money donors have raised to get Mon General Hospital a new radiation center designed to help cancer patients.
On Wednesday morning officials with the hospital announced plans to build the new center.
In order to make room for the Zelda Stein Weiss Cancer Center they'll need to expand.
Darryl Duncan, the president and CEO of Mon Health Systems, said this is a big step for them because they already have places for surgery and chemo therapy that help to treat cancer patients. He said this addition allows patients to get all the treatments they need all in one place.
"That's what were trying to do here through a comprehensive cancer center designation," Duncan said. "We want all those professionals under one roof so that the patient can say with confidence 'my team discussed my case and this is the best option for me'. "

The West Virginia Health Care Authority still needs to approve the project. Duncan said once they do the center should be finished in about nine months.
