Dr. Pamela Catton died peacefully on December 23rd at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre surrounded by her family. She was, to name but a few of her many accomplishments, a Professor of Radiation Oncology and Vice Chair, Education, at the Department of Radiation Oncology, University of Toronto Director of Oncology Education, Medical Director, Cancer Survivorship Program, and the Butterfield/Drew Chair in Breast Cancer Survivorship at the  Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. Pam was a longstanding and involved CARO member, daughter of one of the fathers of Canadian Radiation oncology and founders of CARO, Prof Gordon Catton, and sister, among others, to Dr Charles Catton. She was passionate about interdisciplinary and inter-professional education, survivorship, engagement, innovation. Her patients, colleagues, friends, her husband and extended family, and the many residents, students, therapists and junior and senior staff that she mentored over the years will miss her terribly although her legacy will forever remain.

There will be a private family service. Pam’s and family’s wishes are that tribute donations should be directed to The Canadian Radiation Oncology Foundation/Fondation Canadienne de Radio-Oncologie (CROF/FCRO) established partly to help promote the career of Radiation Oncology amongst young physicians or the Toronto Humane Society.
