University Hospitals Ireland Cancer Center and Funky Winkerbean Cartoonist Tom Batiuk Establish Lisa's Legacy Fund for Cancer Research and Education
Date:10/2/2007

ook, Lisa's Story: The Other Shoe, published by The Kent State University Press ($27.95 hardcover, $18.95 paper; October 4, 2007) to Lisa's Legacy Fund at the Ireland Cancer Center.

Lisa's Story is a collection of the 1999 comic strips about Lisa's initial battle with cancer, going into remission, and the current series examining her struggle with the disease and its effect on her family and friends. Additionally, it contains resource material on breast cancer, including the importance of early detection, information sources, hospice and palliative care support systems, and health care.

Batiuk, a cancer survivor himself, said, "Anyone whose family has been affected by cancer knows what a gut-wrenching experience it can be. While great strides have been made in the fight against cancer, there is still much work to do. I've received hundreds of letters and emails from people who recognized themselves or loved ones in Lisa's story. She came to represent the many individual battles against cancer that people fight everyday. Beyond the emotional impact that Lisa's story has had on people, Lisa's Legacy Fund will now have a real impact on the continuing fight against cancer."

Stanton Gerson, M.D., director of the UH Ireland Cancer Center, said, "We are sincerely appreciative of Tom Batiuk's heart-felt gift in allowing us to establish Lisa's Legacy Fund to support cancer research. Through his work, Tom has done much to let women who are fighting breast cancer know that they are not alone. And through Lisa's Legacy Fund, we will be able to continue making progress in our ultimate goals of preventing, controlling, and eradicating cancer in all of its different forms." In order to provide the most comprehensive services, University Hospitals is set to build a new, free- standing cancer hospital that will unite all of its cancer services under one roof. The proposed 360,000-square-foot facility, slated to open in 2010, will include 150 inpatient beds and ambu
