6th Annual “A Race for the Roses”


Our 6th Annual “A Race for the Roses” held on May 6 at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Chris Shelby was a huge success. We cleared $88,788.00. Wow! 98% of this money raised will go directly to providing services and support to patients undergoing treatment at the Willis-Knighton Cancer Center in Shreveport. I would like to thank the outstanding committee and many volunteers from the cancer center and community that helped make this day such a huge success. The Caddo-Bossier Cancer Foundation League would like to extend a very special thank you to our all of the 2017 sponsors.

Race for the Roses 2017 Sponsors

Facing the diagnosis of cancer can be a frightening prospect. For those with financial concerns, the burden is magnified. The Caddo-Bossier Cancer Foundation League is a nonprofit organization dedicated to making life easier for patients undergoing cancer treatment at the Willis-Knighton Cancer Center. The League provides direct assistance such as transportation, lodging and personal items to support these patients. Best of all, 100% of the funds raised are distributed locally.

The League has a needs-based application process to help assure that the funding goes where the needs are the greatest. Formed in 2011, the League initially offered support of up to $300 per patient per year. In 2016, larger grants are now available due to membership growth and fundraising.

Through the generous gifts and efforts of many who support the League, the extra burden of travel and housing issues are no longer prohibitive. I appreciate the League for working hard to address the needs of our patients, both those less fortunate and those who travel great distances to our center.Closed Quote
