In November, Hyundai Motor America donated $55,000 to support programs in the CHOC Children?s Cancer Institute.

Fifty thousand will be used to support the research of CHOC oncology specialist Dr. Samuel Esparza, the recipient of the 2008 Hyundai Scholars Award. Dr. Esparza is developing a Hispanic American leukemia program to investigate the causes of a greater incidence of cancer occurrence among the Hispanic population.

Five thousand is designated to support CHOC?s Spot a Spot program, a partnership with the National Melanoma Awareness Project and the UC Irvine School of Medicine. The program aims to educate students and their teachers in grades 6 ? 12 about the sun?s effects on skin, sun protection, and skin cancers?with an emphasis on early detection of melanoma.

According to Steve Keefe, vice president of Douglas Hyundai of Santa Ana and Douglas Hyundai Irvine Auto Center, ?Hyundai dealers are very proud to have supported the fight against pediatric cancer for 10 years; we are privileged to honor the courage and hope of the children and their families who face this battle.?

According to Dr. Leonard Sender, medical director of the Cancer Institute, ?Hyundai Motor America has set a tremendous example by their leadership in funding pediatric cancer research through the Hope on Wheels and Hyundai Scholarship programs. We are extremely grateful for this wonderful partnership.?
