(KMOV) -- NBA hall of famer and leukemia survivor Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is in town.
 
He's hosting a cancer research fundraising gala on Saturday night.
 
On Friday, he toured the Siteman Cancer Center and visited with a couple of leukemia patients.
 
Kareem's leukemia is currently in remission.
 
He says he started having hot flashes last year and knew since he wasn't a candidate for menopause, something was wrong.
 
The money raised at Saturday night's gala at the Chase Park Plaza goes directly to cancer research happening in St. Louis.
