Celebration for Life
Donors and friends of The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James) have gathered each spring since 2002 for Celebration for Life (CFL), an event chaired by Judy and Steve Tuckerman and held at Smith & Wollensky Restaurant at Easton Town Center. The event, which has raised $20.7 million, benefits The James Fund for Life, an annual fund at Ohio State that is chaired by Abigail and Les Wexner and supports the purchase of technologies and equipment for cancer research and patient care at the OSUCCC – James. While the event takes a pause this year, here is a look at prior gatherings (indicated by the year in which they were taken), and the generosity that has enabled the purchase of crucial technology, including a prone biopsy table, mobile education kitchen, and robotic surgical equipment. Recently, $5 million was committed over five years to purchase technology for the new West Campus Ambulatory Facility.
