Demos T. Kyrazis, Ph.D., lives in Albuquerque, N.M. Following his third retirement in 1993, he and wife Joanne founded R-Cubed Inc., an engineering firm specializing in precision measurements of optical turbulence in the atmosphere, aero-optics and efficient extraction of wind energy. He served in the United States Air Force for 30 years, retiring as a colonel. He received his doctorate degree in applied science from the University of California Davis and holds a number of patents.

He is on the Intellectual Property and Technology Commercialization Advisory Group of the MD Anderson Cancer Center Board of Visitors.
Donna McNulty Reinbolt is the patient advocate for MD Anderson's lymphoma SPORE and co-founder and president of the Houston chapter of the Lymphoma Research Foundation. The National Cancer Institute selected her to serve as the national lymphoma advocate at its July 2011 Translational Science Meeting in Washington, D.C.
It was a legendary effort. Business and community leaders in Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth and San Antonio, Texas, and in Las Vegas, Nev., raised more than $1,725,000 through four A Conversation With a Living Legend® events in Fiscal Year 2012. Over the years, the popular luncheon-interview format, which originated in Dallas in 1990 and has spread as far as Washington, D.C., and Atlanta, Ga., has raised more than $14 million for cancer research and patient care initiatives at MD Anderson.
