impactCancer Summer 2011


ImpactCancer is our new quarterly publication that celebrates the remarkable generosity, hard work and dedication of our donors and friends. 

In this inaugural issue, you’ll learn about some of the incredible cancer research, care and facilities that are possible because of our philanthropic champions, community partners, grateful patients, fundraising events and more. You’ll also read about the transformative gift made by Les and Abigail Wexner, a gift that will surely make it possible for the world to one day say, “But for Ohio State, we never would have cured cancer.” Thank you for your continued support for helping us create a cancer-free world.
