UHN and Princess Margaret Patient Stories​

See more stories on the 'Personal Stories' page »

Five-time cancer survivor Sabrina Fuoco shares her remarkable story in this four part series.

Laurie Tucker, Wig Salon Specialist and Kevin LeNeve, Radiation Therapist at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, are the 2015 recipients of the Michael Kamin Hart Award for Excellence in Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology Care.

"One of the reasons cancer is so difficult for young people is because you're at a point in your life when you're still growing and evolving, and trying to figure   out who you are."

Adriana Lombardo had plans: to attend high school graduation, to spend a post-grad trip in Spain and to start school at George Brown College in September.

The AYA program recently hosted a Look Good Feel Good event for young adult patients on Jan. 21. 

Vibrant, intelligent and compassionate – Michael Kamin Hart was diagnosed with  lymphoma and passed away on June 5, 2011 at the age of 25. His family created the Michael Kamin Hart Award for Excellence in Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology Care in his honour.
