The O’Connors head the Ambassadors’ Circle, a group of supporters who have raised $100,000 for the institute.
The Health Science Center honored Tom Loeffler and his wife, Nancy, recently with the naming of the Loeffler Atrium at the Health Science Center’s Children’s Cancer Research Institute. Tom Loeffler is a former member of the U.S. House of Representatives and former chair of The University of Texas System Board of Regents.

"Tom, few people have had the impact on Texas that you have had, not just as a congressman, but as one of the top leaders in Congress, and not just as an adviser and friend to one president, but to many," said Health Science Center President Francisco G. Cigarroa, M.D. He called Loeffler "a great leader for education, and a great leader in the communitywide effort to bring this Children’s Cancer Research Institute to San Antonio."

Loeffler is a cancer survivor. He and Mrs. Loeffler are among a group of community leaders who are supporting the new research institute. The naming of the atrium "is a great honor for Nancy and me," he said.
