Givens Brain Tumor Center ...More

If you've ever eaten at a Wendy’s restaurant in Minnesota, you have the Givens family to thank. They've owned Wendy's franchises in Minnesota and parts of western Wisconsin for more than 30 years. 
 
For decades, Mike Givens was a pioneer in the restaurant franchise business. He was inducted into the Wendy's Hall of Fame.  
And he helped to raise millions of dollars for the Dave Thomas Foundation - helping children in foster care find families. Now his family is giving back in his honor. 
 
Mike was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2005 and passed away in 2015. Now the Givens Brain Tumor Center will offer support, treatment and therapies to others diagnosed right here in Minnesota. His family sat down with TCL Reporter Kelli Hanson to share what this world class cancer center means to them and what it will mean to other families affected.
