Portrait of Patrick C. Walsh, M.D.

Patrick C. Walsh, M.D., has been selected as a 2014 Giant of Cancer Care. The initiative celebrates individuals who have achieved landmark success within the field of oncology. Exceptional cancer researchers and cancer physicians aren’t born — they’re made. Although they come from varied backgrounds, there is a common thread they all seem to exhibit: a dogged persistence in tackling and solving some of the most complex scientific challenges; a compassionate drive to improve the quality of life of the patient; drawing inspiration from mentors who came before them; and all too often, they have experienced the loss of a family member or friend from cancer. These attributes and experiences mark just some of what makes up an individual destined to thrive in the oncology field.
