Being a never smoker, Geoffrey Ogram was shocked to receive a diagnosis of lung cancer in 2010. Despite two years of non-progression, successful surgery and targeted therapy, Geoffrey passed away on Friday April 15th, 2016.
He was a tireless activist for lung cancer awareness and research. He participated in many campaigns to educate the public and institutions and served as a Member of the Board and the Co-Chair of the Advocacy Committee at Lung Cancer Canada for many years. Having earned a PhD in Physics, he was convinced that research into early detection and advanced treatments (including personalized medicine) was on the brink of dramatically improving outcomes for cancer patients.
