Within hours, Steve Atlass became both a father and cancer patient. Upon hearing about his cancer diagnosis, his wife Paige went into premature labor, and thankfully today all are healthy. Grateful for his medical care, Steve and Paige made a gift to the Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine to provide essential funding for the completion of new outpatient facilities for the Abramson Cancer Center. Steve is part of the Abramson Cancer Center Director's Leadership Council, having served an extended term as Chair, and acts as one of our strongest advocates for our patient care and research programs.
"There is hope. There are diseases that four or five years ago were death sentences, and they're not anymore, and that seems to be happening every day here at the Abramson Cancer Center."
