I have been part of the UNC Oncology team for the past six years. Cancer care has been a part of my professional life for 16 years. Like many cancer has also had a personal impact on my life. Several years ago my mother was diagnosed with cancer and passed soon after her diagnosis. Losing my mom and the impact that this had on my family and myself solidified the passion that I have to improve care for all cancer patients and their families and to ensure that every effort is made to find a cure.
For more than 60 years the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) has invested over $1 billion to advance cancer therapies and save lives. LLS has been relentless in the pursuit of its mission: to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families. While the survival rate has improved, our work is not yet done.
Meghan McCann, Associate Vice President at the North Carolina Cancer Hospital at UNC in Chapel Hill, was nominated by her colleagues to be a candidate in this year’s Man & Woman of the Year campaign. The LLS Man & Woman of the Year campaign is a friendly “competition” for people who have a similar interest in wiping out blood cancer. I am proud to be a member of Meghan's team the MegaHEELers. We have ten weeks, from March 7th to May 18th, to raise as much money as we can for LLS. Our team goal is to raise $150,000! By going to the link below you can help make a difference.
