Honoring Dr. Keith Dave Amos
October 8, 1970 – June 17, 2013
Dr. Keith Amos was instrumental in the start-up of the 1in9 foundation and our organization wouldn’t be here today without him. Dr. A shared with us his vision of helping the underserved here in North Carolina. He did everything humanly possible to assist women battling breast cancer—not only in the operating room, but out in the community educating, in the labs researching, or making rounds or phone calls well into the evening - always with a smile.
He was more than just a surgeon, he was truly a gift to the medical community, and more importantly to his patients.
We honor his life and his life’s work with each and every step at today’s 5K. He was a foot soldier in the war on cancer. He will forever be missed.
