The MD Anderson Cancer Center Board of Visitors, an appointed board of volunteers charged with advancing MD Anderson's mission to end cancer, welcomed nine new members at its Nov. 11 annual meeting. The new group reflects the board's national and international presence.
Jim Mulva began his two-year term as chair of the MD Anderson Cancer Center Board of Visitors on Sept. 1. Mulva was CEO of ConocoPhillips from 2002 until he retired in 2012. He began his energy career at Phillips Petroleum in 1973. Mulva and his wife of 47 years, Miriam, are members of the Anderson Assembly, an organization honoring donors who have made lifetime commitments of $1 million or more to MD Anderson. The Miriam and Jim Mulva Conference Center at MD Anderson is named in recognition of their $5 million gift to support melanoma research.
Wayne Gibbens has been a member of the MD Anderson Cancer Center Board of Visitors (BOV) since 1981. He and his wife, Beth, live in Middleburg, Virginia.
The carefree days of summer are anything but for Lily Deagan, 11, and Lucy Keith, 10, of Victoria, Texas. The two friends who share a love of sports and a passion for helping others decided to open a lemonade stand this past summer. The goal? Raise money for cancer research. In a few hours, the girls raised $220 for breast cancer research at MD Anderson, a place they say is near and dear to their hearts.
