“Great things are done when men and mountains meet.” — William Blake
Recently, I celebrated my third anniversary as the Director of the GRU Cancer Center. While I was happy to let the moment slide by with a minimum of fanfare, I feel like there is some celebrating in order – not for me, but for you
You see, three years ago we were in a very different place. The GRU Cancer Center, as it exists today was much more goal than reality and getting us to this point required the investment, engagement and efforts of more people than I care to count and none more than the Cancer Center’s doctors, scientists, health care professionals and administrative leaders.
Together we have done great things. We have treated the most difficult cases. We have made significant scientific breakthroughs. We continue to attract talent from around the world that wants to be part of our evolving success story. And while we often talk about goals – designation, increased reach and treatment opportunities and the development of innovative new programs, for instance – the truth is we are all always working toward something singular
We are working to improve, for this community and beyond, every day.
That, for me, is the greatest of anniversary gifts.
