The Max Foundation is proud to announce that our Chief Executive Officer Pat Garcia-Gonzalez has been named a finalist for the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC)’s CEO Award!

Pat is one of three finalists for this year’s award, alongside two friends and compatriots in the fight against cancer: Asem Mansour of King Hussein Cancer Center in Jordan, and Wondu Bekele Woldemariam of Mathiwos Wondu-YeEthiopia Cancer Society. Our thanks and congratulations go out to all three finalists for their tremendous impact and visionary leadership. The world is a better place for their contributions.

We would also like to thank the 18 different Patient Associations from around the world that sent letters in support of Pat’s nomination. You are the inspiration for all we do and we are so very grateful for your support.

The winner of the award will be announced on October 2nd at this year’s World Cancer Congress in Kuala Lumpur. Representatives from The Max Foundation and patient advocates from across Asia will be in attendance to share their knowledge, their experiences, and, of course, to cheer on Pat!
