The one hundred honoree: Timothy Quinn

Mass General Giving

As the national director of creative artistry for Giorgio Armani Beauty, Timothy (Tim) Quinn is known in his industry as the face designer of choice to female stage, screen and TV stars.

Tim is a frequent guest on the Today Show and E! Entertainment, and readers of W, Elle, Glamour and Cosmopolitan follow his beauty tips and wisdom, which appeal to women of all ages and life paths.

Tim is also a cancer survivor. In 2007, he was diagnosed with testicular cancer and chose the Mass General Cancer Center for his care, which included chemotherapy, surgery and radiation treatment. Tim kept his spirits high by decorating his hospital room, wearing his own clothes and stylish hats and giving make-up tips to the nursing staff.

Now, while traveling the world to promote Giorgio Armani Beauty, Tim also generously gives of his time to raise funds for cancer research. He takes part in events for Mass General Cancer Center and the National Foundation for Cancer Research. Tim also willingly shares his story with others, particularly men, who may be reluctant to confront the illness and seek early treatment.
