Giving Spotlights

Indiana Lions

In nearly 65 years, the Indiana Lions have raised more than $4 million for the IU School of Medicine Department of Radiation Oncology.

The Indiana Lions Cancer Control Fund has touched countless numbers of cancer patients and families through their many avenues of support. In nearly 65 years, the Indiana Lions have raised more than $4.2 million, most of which has been dedicated to their partnership with the IU School of Medicine Department of Radiation Oncology. Though the Lions have made possible the purchase of many pieces of medical equipment over the years, their gift of $1 million toward the purchase of the Gamma Knife and Stereotactic Body Frame is particularly outstanding. The Lions also help fund a patient advocate who provides emotional and non-medical support to cancer patients and their families. In 2008, the Lions initiated their current campaign to provide funding to a faculty member who will work to develop necessary programs and long-term outreach for the growing number of cancer survivors in Indiana and beyond.
