Local Charity Looking for Artist Help

The Life Savers fundraising project benefits cancer research at LSU Health Shreveport's Feist-Weiller Cancer Center. All proceeds stay in the community to advance cancer treatment. Life Savers allows Feist-Weiller Cancer Center to grant Idea Awards for cancer research scientists to develop their ideas. This brings local competitive grants to 26, worth a total of $1.3 million. Twelve of these scientists have been successful on the national level, bringing $9.4 million back in to the community from national organizations like the National Cancer Institute (NCI), Susan G. Komen and the Department of Defense. 

Maria Busada is currently looking for artist who would be willing to donate their work for the cause.  If you are interested please contact her at mariabusada@gmail.com.  

The link below is the LIFE SAVERS 2013 page on the Feist Weiller website. You can click on the auction item donation form or to learn more information.
