Dr David Mutch - Ovarian Cancer Warrior

The donations are coming in strong for the NOCC Walk to Break the Silence - over $100,000 strong and there is still plenty of time to give a donation.

One of the warriors in the fight against ovarian cancer is Dr. David Mutch of Washington University Siteman Cancer Center in St. Louis. Dr. Mutch is outstanding physician and researcher - possessing the  qualities everyone seeks in their doctor - someone who values the relationship he has with his patients and who is tireless in his efforts towards their care. At the 2011 Survive and Thrive course at Feinberg School of Medicine, I saw first hand the respect that Dr. Mutch has among his peers. Whenever I mentioned Dr. Mutch's name, there was a resounding acknowledgment from colleagues from Northwestern to Vanderbilt University as his former residents took the time to mention to me that they had been under his guidance.

Having Dr. Mutch in the battle gives confidence and hope to survivors for a bright and long future.
