2018: A Year of Thanksgiving

By Todd Stevens, President and CEO

One of my favorite things about this time of year is the opportunity to express thankfulness for the many ways our community has come together to advance the Cancer Center’s mission and serve more patients and their families.

We are grateful for both those who entrust us with their care and the community supporters who generously give of their time and resources. And personally, I’m thankful for the great group of physicians and team members whose kindness and compassion are uniquely matched by their clinical and professional skills.

Following are a few highlights from the year that we especially reflect on with gratitude. Please click on the bold text to learn more:

Looking Within

As always, we thank our hospital, academic and community partners for the role they play in extending community cancer care. I wish everyone a peaceful, joyful and hopeful Thanksgiving and holiday season.
