A native Fresnan whose grandfather built the Reedley Opera House has given $250,000 to a cancer survivorship program at Children’s Hospital Central California.

Norman D. Jansen, 94, made the gift in memory of his wife, Vivian E. Jansen, who died of leukemia in June 2009.

The hospital said Jansen was encouraged to support Children’s by a caregiver, who was not identified. The caregiver’s son was treated at the hospital.
