Executive Director Message


As we prepare for Thanksgiving and the holidays that follow, we pause and reflect on the many blessings that we enjoy.

In my case, I am thankful to be part of an effort that improves the lives of others. I hear extraordinary stories every day about the path our patients endured after their diagnosis as well as the uplifting stories of alumni who are able to continue living their lives to the fullest. I’m thankful for our patients and alumni whose commitment to a cancer-free future is a true inspiration. I’m thankful for our wonderful staff and volunteers who selflessly work daily miracles. And last but certainly not least, I’m thankful for our supporters in our community and throughout the world that help spread the word about the power of proton therapy. Their generosity provides resources and donations that support the research and treatment performed every day at UF Health Proton Therapy Institute.

Through our collective efforts, the UF Health Proton Therapy Institute has been a welcoming place for the past 10 years where those diagnosed with cancer can receive the treatment they need and a hope for a bright future. Again, my heartfelt thanks and wishes for a wonderful start to the holiday season.
