What We Do

Live Like Liz organizes and participates in educational + fundraising events in order to raise awareness of ovarian cancer. Proceeds go toward:

  • Direct patient care through donations to local cancer facilities.
  • Scholarships for high school seniors in the Finger Lakes area.
  • Educational symposiums, offering CMEs to health care professionals.

The Community Foundation of Elmira, Corning and the Finger Lakes Area administers the funds for The Elizabeth Amisano Ovarian Cancer Education Fund, a 501(c)(3) organization.  It is through the assistance of the Community Foundation that the Education Fund was established in 2006.
