Life Savers fundraising has allowed Feist-Weiller Cancer Center to grant three Idea Awards in 2011
for cancer researchers to develop their ideas. This brings local competitive grants to 25, worth a total of $1.3 million. Twelve of these scientists have been successful on the national level, bringing $8 million back into the community. To purchase tickets online visit the Feist-Weiller Cancer Center Donation Form
and choose the program Life Savers.
