The one hundred honoree: Catherine Pappas

Mass General Giving

The Stephen E. and Catherine Pappas Center for Neuro-Oncology is a multidisciplinary center that facilitates collaboration between specialists to better treat individual patients with tumors of the nervous system as well as neurological complications of cancer; to investigate the mechanisms involved in the formation and growth of brain tumors; to educate new brain tumor specialists; and to provide support and education to patients and their families.

“Stephen and I always believed that life was about helping others,” says Mrs. Pappas. “This is our way of giving to the many patients and families who are in need of quality medical care.” Pictured are Jay Loeffler, mD, chief, Radiation Oncology; Tracy Batchelor mD, mPH, executive director, Pappas Center; and Robert Martuza, mD, chief, Neurosurgery and director, Pappas Center.
