The Board of Trustees and staff of The Chemotherapy Foundation mourn with deep sorrow the passing of Jimmie Holland, M.D., Trustee, colleague and friend. A founder of the field of psycho-oncology, during her long and distinguished career she mentored countless psychiatrists and psychologists in the emotional needs of people with cancer. The impact of her work and research is recognized worldwide. Her sophisticated vision, active participation and commitment as a Foundation Trustee will be missed. We extend our condolences to her husband and lifelong professional partner Dr. James Holland and to their family. Franco M. Muggia, M.D. Chairman/Medical Director
