Cancer surgery society presents top honor to Kimberly Duchossois
Date:3/5/2011

At its annual cancer symposium, the Society of Surgical Oncology will present the 43rd annual James Ewing Layman's Award to Kimberly T. Duchossois of Barrington Hills, IL, for her deep commitment and long-term efforts to improve the quality of cancer treatment and help cancer patients get the information they need to make wise decisions about their care.

The Award, to be presented Saturday, March 5, at the Society's 64th annual meeting in San Antonio, TX, celebrates the contributions of those who are not cancer physicians but who find unique ways to improve cancer care. Past recipients include Mary Lasker, Ann Landers, Jane Brody, Evelyn Lauder, Nancy Brinker, General Norman Schwarzkopf, Arnold Palmer, Hamilton Jordan, Tommy Thompson and, in 2000, Richard Duchossois, Kimberly's father.

"By virtue of Kim's leadership and vision, she and her family are helping to improve the lives of cancer patients and their families on a daily basis," said Society President, Mitchell Posner, MD, the Thomas D. Jones Professor and vice chairman of surgery and section chief of general and oncologic surgery at the University of Chicago Medical Center. "They have helped inspire and inform a nationwide effort to connect all cancer patients with the comprehensive services they need."

The family's dedication to cancer care, and to cancer patients, began in 1980 when Beverly DuchossoisRichard's wife and Kimberly's motherdied from cancer, at age 57. Since that tragic event, the entire family has made steady and significant contributions to cancer research and patient support services.

A young mother at the time of Beverly's death, Kimberly is now 57. "She tells me she often imagines how different the outcome might have been if Beverly had been diagnosed today," said Posner. "The field has progressed rapidly and we now have so many more treatment tools."
