Dr. Mark Graham: Coach Yow’s Trusted Oncologist

Time and again, Cancer Warriors tell us how important it is to have an oncologist you trust. Someone who is that perfect balance of intelligence and compassion. Someone who can navigate the toughest challenges in the moment while giving hope for the future.

Kay Yow had a trusted oncologist in Dr. Mark Graham.

Dr. Graham founded Waverly Hematology Oncology in Cary, North Carolina in 2004. In the years since, he has served thousands of women in the Triangle area — Kay Yow was just one — ALL receive Dr. Graham’s complete devotion.

As a founding member of the Kay Yow Cancer Fund Board of Directors, Dr. Graham quietly shows his commitment to the Fund and the fight against ALL cancers affecting women through his personal support as a Legacy Campaign member and a sponsor of both the annual Golf

Classic and the Celebration Run/Walk.

In 2019, Dr. Graham was the honorary chair of the Celebration Run/Walk, an event that honors and uplifts cancer warriors, rallying more than 100 women and their families to participate. But Dr. Graham’s leadership as a Board member goes beyond financial support or annual events.

When Kay Yow asked Dr. Graham to serve as a Board Member, it was a display of trust. She trusted him to give the Fund and all of the women it would impact the same attention and care he had given her. She trusted him to be a guardian, using his knowledge of medical science to help ensure that all grant dollars go to the most promising research in the country. She trusted him to serve and give to others.

Thank you, Dr. Graham. Thank you for all of the lives you have touched, the way you have given, and the example you set. You are the Power of On
