2009 Lift for Life 4

Jon and Carol Willie, right, speak with Melissa Philips, left, and her grandmother Carole Saft, center left, at the Willie family's display of Penn State scarves for sale at the Penn State football team's Lift For Life fundraising event in Holuba Hall on Friday, July 10. Organized by the Penn State chapter of the nonprofit organization Uplifting Athletes, the event helped to raise more than $80,000 to support kidney cancer patients and research. The Willie family, impacted by kidney cancer, includes son Eric and daughter Alison (not pictured). Proceeds from the scarves, made by the family or donated by other supporters, go to Lift for Life.
