Our Featured Guests

 

Gary Doolittle, MD, is the Capital Federal Masonic Professor of Medicine in the Division of Oncology at University of Kansas Medical Center, where he  is also the Medical Director of the Masonic Cancer Alliance, vice-chair of  education in the Department of Internal Medicine and Assistant Dean for the Office of Medical Education.   

Dr. Doolittle has been a faculty member in the Division of Clinical Oncology at KU for 30 years.  He has written many journal articles, books, and book chapters on a range of oncology topics, with an emphasis on telemedicine  in cancer care delivery. 


Dr. Doolittle was diagnosed with Kidney cancer in 2009.  He will share about his personal cancer journey, and how living as a cancer survivor    impacts his professional work in cancer care.  We are excited to have Dr. Doolittle share at our Champions for Survivorship Breakfast!
 

Eboni Fondren is one of the most highly sought after and premiere jazz vocalists in Kansas City and has become a bandleader in her own right.  In addition to her own musical projects which include Eboni and the Ivories, and a member of the Lost Wax Band, Eboni collaborates with some of  Kansas City's top musicians and can be heard swinging all over the local jazz scene.

 

She has been featured on the cover of The Jam Magazine and performed for the groundbreaking of the new single terminal airport at MCI, sung the national anthem for the Women's National Gymnastics Championship and the NCAA Big 12 Tournaments. 

As an actress and voice over artist, she has lit up the stage with feature roles at some of Kansas City's top Theatre Companies in productions. We are so thrilled to have her share her beautiful voice, passion and heart with us as she performs at our Champions for Survivorship Breakfast!
