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.

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."

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."
