3rd Annual Cancer Survivorship Walkathon

Saturday, April 13, Betty Virginia Park • Shreveport, LA

Join cancer survivors and their community of supporters to walk in celebration of survivorship!

At Feist-Weiller Cancer Center (FWCC), oncologists, hematologists, surgeons, radiologists, therapists, and researchers collaborate to offer preeminent cancer care, research, and educational programs. FWCC is the only academic cancer center in the northern half of Louisiana, an area with immense need and some of the highest incidences of cancer in the nation. This reality provides us the opportunity to better serve our communities and make an incredible difference in cancer research and treatment.

The faculty and staff at Feist-Weiller are developing a patient-centered, multidisciplinary approach aimed at improving clinical outcomes through the use of precision medicine and customized treatment plans. This includes enhancements to our clinical infrastructure and expanding cancer services in Shreveport and Monroe. FWCC also boasts the Partners in Wellness program – a mobile cancer screening program that delivers critical screening and education to rural areas in north Louisiana.
