Dr. Jack Hand stayed with patients every step of the way. From diagnosis to treatment to the best and worst outcomes, the families of the children he treated felt he was right by their side through it all. His humour, ability and compassion were as much a part of a child’s recovery from cancer as the medicine itself. Although we lost “Dr. Jack” in 2012, the Dr. Jack Hand Legacy Foundation wishes to fulfill his life work and help children suffering from a Hematology or Oncology-related illness.
