In March of 2012 Marie Bagsby, Wilhagans’ general manager of 14 years, lost her battle to cancer. The Marie Memorial was established in her memory, and in the three years since Marie’s death Wilhagan’s has contributed $14,000 to the Young Ambassadors at Vanderbilt. This funding was used to support innovative cancer research being conducting by promising young Vanderbilt scientists.

I didn’t know what to expect attending my first awarding. I was blown away by the researchers and their dedication to finding a cure for some of the most horrific cancers people face today. Trying to narrow down the top three was a struggle. All of the presenters are doing research that will have a positive impact on treatment outcomes. They were all so deserving.
