The Dr. Alex and Maria Zolli Living Angel Award

Over the past 26 years, the Life Savers Ball has recognized unsung heroes in our community by honoring them with the Dr. Alex and Maria Zolli Living Angel Award. Each year, an individual in our community who is directly involved in the field of cancer — either through personal experiences or by working with cancer patients — is presented with this special award for going above and beyond to support those touched by cancer. The nominee may be a cancer patient, nurse, volunteer, researcher, social worker, physician, etc.

Nomination letters specifying the accomplishments of your candidate must be received by Friday, January 14, 2022. We, the 2022 Life Savers Ball Committee, ask you to consider nominating an individual who meets these criteria.

Please send all nominations to:

Life Savers Ball - Living Angel Award

10501 Euclid Avenue

Cleveland, Ohio 44106
