Honoring the Memory of Mary Ann Cross

Ryan Cross and Mary Ann Cross
Mother and Son 
Ryan Cross explains, "My mother would be thrilled that University Hospitals is at the forefront of immunotherapy care and research and that her memory is associated with this important work through Cross Out Cancer."

Thanks to excellent clinical care and innovative research at UH Seidman Cancer Center and the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center, Mary Ann Cross successfully battled Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) for 23 years. She appreciated that living in Cleveland afforded her access to the some of the most advanced cancer care available in the world. Immunotherapy has the promise of new cures for many forms of cancer, including CLL.
