With a heavy heart I write to the many friends and admirers of Ellen Stovall and NCCS about her passing on January 5, suddenly from cardiac complications due to her cancer treatments. To many of us—likely thousands—she was a trustworthy friend, a mentor, a collaborator, a visionary. Ellen was all of this and more, and always with a generous heart, a keen mind, a quick wit, and unswerving ethics. How fortunate we were to know her; how grateful we are for her thinking and her work for all cancer survivors.
Now is the time to honor Ellen. Each in our own way. At NCCS, we will carry on, inspired by Ellen’s lengthy leadership and incredible legacy.
