Our long-time colleague and friend Pam Lord passed away December 23, 2019 from pancreatic cancer. Pam was a model of health and happiness in September, when she ran an 11K race and shaved seven minutes off of her previous run, finishing first in her age group. A few weeks later, she was diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer.
A veteran of the biotech industry, Pam was known for her dedication to the industry, and was committed to working as long as she could even with full appreciation of the statistics of her disease. How poignant that the last press release outreach she did was for a San Diego company launching to target pancreatic cancer. Pam’s loyalty, kind heart, mentorship, and uninhibited laughter will be dearly missed, and her spirit will always be part of the fabric of Canale Communications.
