Outback co-founder Sullivan donates $5 million to Moffitt

Restaurant developer Chris Sullivan, who co-founded the Outback Steakhouse chain that got its start in Tampa, has donated $5 million to Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa for research into melanoma therapy.

Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer, responsible for about 75 percent of all skin cancer-related deaths, although it accounts for less than 5 percent of all skin cancer cases.
