The STEEL Lillies is a non-profit group created in memory of Tiffany Lill to raise funds and awareness for Sarcoma / Cancer Research.  Tiffany lost her battle with this terrible disease at the age of 39.  She was a wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin and friend.  Her legacy will be one of HOPE for others out there who are continuing this fight!
STEEL Lillies is dedicated to supporting Sarcoma Research at the James P. Wilmot Cancer Institute at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester NY. If you would like to make a donation, please make your check payable to Wilmot Cancer Institute and mail it to the care of Steel Lillies/ 40 Humboldt Street/ Suite 200/ Rochester NY 14609. You can also donate online through the University of Rochester's donation page. Thank you!

STEEL Lillies was founded in January 2012 with Tiffany Lill, who was undergoing her personal battle with Sarcoma.  She wanted to raise awareness and funding for Sarcoma research, a little known cancer.  At that time, Tiffany was in the middle of her sixteen month long fight with the disease. The Mother of two young children and lifelong “Flower City” resident would eventually lose her courageous battle on 4/9/12.

The STEEL Lillies name symbolizes Tiffany’s beauty and toughness.  The “STEEL” represents Tiffany’s unwavering strength and metal rods that were inserted into her back to support her spine after tumors grew around her upper back area.  The “Lillies” represents Tiffany’s last name, as well as being her favorite flower.

We are proud to share that with your help, we have raised a total of over $182,000 toward our pledge of $250,000 and every gift will be matched dollar for dollar by the University of Rochester’s Department of Orthopedics.  Your support has and will continue to elevate the level of sarcoma-related research as well as the care of patients who face a Sarcoma diagnosis.  Through the generous funds raised by the Steel Lillies Group, Dr. Emily Carmody was successfully recruited by the U of R and she began her work this past August.

 
June 10, 2012 we held our 1st Annual STEEL Lillies 5k Run/Walk in Highland Park.  We had over 900 participants in our inaugural event and were able to make an initial donation to the Wilmot Cancer Institute of $50,000.  We could not do any of this without YOUR support and generosity!  We hope to continue to have FUN events for this incredibly worthy cause.  From everyone in the Bayer & Lill families, we thank you so much for your gifts in helping us honor Tiff.


We are very happy to let everyone know that our 2013 ALL IN for STEEL Lillies event raised $57,000.  That brings our total raised to $107,000 for the Wilmot Cancer Institute.  Thanks to your generosity and support, we are more than 40% to our goal of a $250,000 donation.  Together we are making a positive impact on Sarcoma research in Tiff's name.  Thank you again for your continued support!
