Fresno Bee

Children’s Hospital Central California has received a $1 million gift that will be used for the hospital’s child life, oncology and neurosurgery programs, honoring a Fresno native who himself battled cancer.

Robert Michael Shapazian, founding director of Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills, died of lung cancer in June 2010 at age 67. The $1 million gift in his memory will allow Children’s Hospital to begin a pilot program in its imaging and emergency departments, hospital officials said.
