A Doctor’s Life Cut Short by Cancer

Filed under: Cancer — admin @ 12:34 am

Once again, I read this news in our internal circulation. A dentist, age 50, was in excellent health, being a doctor and having been careful about diet and nutrition. He was shocked when he learned that he had stage 4 colon cancer. He died four months after the initial diagnosis.

His family set up in his memory Thomas P. O’Sullivan IV Foundation to supports research, education, advocacy and early detection of colorectal cancer. This is the only organization in the area dedicated to this form of cancer. The foundation is funded primarily through the annual proceeds of the Tom O’Sullivan Golf Classic.

Stories like this often serve as a reminder of the importance of early detection of any type of cancer.
