    saving pull tabs from cans for cancer treatments

    I was wondering if anyone else has or knows about saving the pull tabs from soda cans to help with cancer treatments for kids. Is this a real thing or a scam. If it is for real where do I send the tabs and who too.

      When I got out of the Hospital after a auto accident my Dr. wanted me to get some exercise so I started riding my bicycle around our small town. I heard about collecting can tabs for Cancer Research, so I would stop and pick up the cans that people would throw out along the road. I saved the tabs for Oschner Hospital, La. and I recycled the cans and used the money to buy myself a new bike.
      A couple years later I had collected quite a few and I saw one of the Oschner workers at the Vegetable Stand in town. I ask her if she could take them to the Hospital for me and she said yes. I told her I would bring them over to the clinic in a few minutes and she said no I can take them I told her I would bring them over. When I got there I walked in with four grocery bags of tabs. She was really surprised. I told her to get either a big bag or box and I went out to the car and got the other five or six bags. I thought she was going faint when she saw how many tabs I had. She said did you drink all of these? I told her only the diet coke’s. The rest were litter along the roads, mostly beer cans that people threw out of their cars.
