"Progress in radiation oncology over the past 40-odd years has allowed for the cure or palliation of millions of patients. Being a radiation oncologist over that same period has provided both professional satisfaction and meaning. Contributing to the Legacy Circle and encouraging my friends and colleagues to do likewise is a way to give back, to increase the Radiation Oncology Institute's capacity to provide early-career researchers a chance at that first grant, or to educate patients, referring physicians, and policy-makers of the critical role of radiation oncology within the therapeutic triad."
—Christopher M. Rose, MD, FASTRO, the ROI Legacy Circle
"I am often asked, 'Did much change during your career in radiation oncology?' My answer is always, 'Yes. Everything! Methods, expectations and results all improved dramatically.' The impact of the research contributions that enabled this comment has been truly remarkable and are unequalled in any other field during our lifetime. Vera and I are pleased to think that through our legacy gift we will be contributing to continuing progress in the future."
—J. Frank Wilson, MD, FASTRO, the ROI Legacy Circle
