Youth Football Conference Donates to Schiffler Survivorship Program

November 27, 2012

Dr. Lisa Schatz, Wheeling Hospital vice president of Clinical Services, accepts a $2,000 donation on behalf of the hospital’s Schiffler Cancer Center’s Survivorship Program, from Eugene Saunders, president of the Ohio Valley Youth Football Conference. The conference sponsored a Breast Cancer Day in October and each of the six participating teams donated a portion of that day’s gate, with the conference itself donating $500. Also helping the cause was Comfort for Kids, a nonprofit organization that sends care packages to children with 22q Syndrome. From left are: Amy Hercules, a volunteer with Comfort for Kids; Schatz; Joey Jozwiak, conference board member; Saunders; and Bill Andress Jr., conference board member. Conference teams that participated in Breast Cancer Day were the Dillonvale Young Buckeyes, the Valley Wolf Pack, the Cameron Young Dragons, the Wheeling Little Patriots, the Marshall County Panthers and the Belmont County Warriors. Schatz said the donation will be earmarked for memberships to the hospital’s Howard Long Wellness Center for Survivorship Program participants.
