The show is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Sebastian George, who was a nationally prominent oncologist and co-founder of the Desert Cancer Foundation. Dr. George received his medical degree and later earned a fellowship at the University of Wisconsin.
Dr George started working at Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage, California in 1982. He became a highly regarded, well-liked oncologist and cancer researcher. He was known for his selfless dedication to helping those battling the ravages of cancer. Dr George often worked for free to help patients who could not afford medical care.
In addition to his work with the Desert Cancer Foundation he founded the first bone marrow transplant program in the Coachella Valley. His tragic death occurred in June 2002, when he was killed in a traffic accident.
This show is dedicated in his memory and supports his legacy at Desert Cancer Foundation!
Desert Cancer Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c) 3 organization dedicated to assisting residents in the Coachella Valley and surrounding communities who need financial assistance in obtaining screening, diagnosis, and treatment for cancer and allied diseases.
