~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The Department of Oncology mourns the loss of Rosalind Goodman who passed away from cancer on August 11, 2014. The dedication of Rosalind and her husband Morris to the McGill oncology community through their generous gift to the McGill Cancer Centre (subsequently re-named the Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Research Centre) and their instrumental role in the ongoing fundraising efforts of the Centre, has been of great benefit to the field of cancer research.
