Support Dr. Woltering’s Neuroendocrine Cancer Research
Funding for research in neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) is extremely difficult to obtain from traditional sources like the National Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society since funding research for more common disease populations will help many more patients. The NET Research Fund will be unable to continue its activities without a major financial boost in the next six months.  Read more     View website

Remembering Billy Beer
It is with great sadness that the Foundation for the LSU Health Sciences Center announces the loss of one of its most generous benefactors, Billy Beer, who passed away on January 21, 2015 at the age of 84.

Billy Beer was just 25 when he arrived at the Charity Polio Unit in the acute stage of polio. Crediting an iron lung found in the basement of Charity with saving his life, Billy didn’t miss a beat in structuring a loving life with his wife Marcia for years to come. He loved big band music, relished good cooking and had an insatiable curiosity about people, politics, and history, enjoying recounting life’s amusing anecdotes.
