Becky Thompson

Becky Thompson, Raleigh, NC has supported prostate cancer research at UNC Lineberger for more than 10 years. Her interests developed when her husband, Hank, was diagnosed with the disease in 1996. Together, they felt that it was important to support the great research taking place at UNC Lineberger. During Hank’s treatment, he developed a very close relationship with his physician, Dr. Young Whang. When Hank passed away in 2005, Becky and her children decided to honor their husband and father’s legacy by supporting Dr. Whang and his research to improve the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. Becky hopes that her commitment will ensure that no family has to suffer all that Hank endured.
