All proceeds from the Life Savers Gala remain in the Shreveport-Bossier City community, providing cancer education and research grants that are awarded in-house to FWCC researchers on a competitive basis. Over the past 20 years, 33 local Idea Grants totaling $1.6 million have been awarded. Our scientists have leveraged this local money into $14.3 million in national grants. These results are a wonderful tribute to the science being done here and to the donors who support the annual Life Savers fundraiser.

Proceeds from the event fund the Idea Grant program at Feist-Weiller Cancer Center, which is designed to help the researchers at Feist-Weiller Cancer Center and LSU Health Shreveport develop their ideas to combat the cancer epidemic in their individual areas of expertise. All Life Saver funds remain in the community.
