Greg Lichti, Vice President, Major Gifts

“I am truly delighted to be a partner with our donors, our colleagues at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and my Foundation colleagues in our vision to Conquer Cancer in Our Lifetime. It feels like we truly are partners with each person playing their part in this great quest.”

Malka Greene, Campaign Director

“Princess Margaret Cancer Centre is one of the top 5 cancer research centres in the world, and it is a privilege to work with our brilliant and dedicated doctors and researchers. We are honoured by an incredible community of donors, whose belief in The Princess Margaret makes innovations in cancer care possible. I am motivated by many personal connections to cancer and the bravery and commitment that I see at the Cancer Centre every day. It is an inspiring and meaningful place to work!”

Areas of Responsibility: Endocrine, Guided Therapeutics (GTx), International Foundations, Invest in Research, Mesothelioma, Lung, Patient Education, Sarcoma

Jill Nelson, Associate Vice-President, Estate Giving

“I’ve met so many special people since I started working at The Princess Margaret.  So many people who have been through a lot themselves, and use their time now to make things better for others.  And I LOVE my work.  You’d think that gifts from Wills and life insurance would be a lot of dusty files – but it’s endlessly interesting and I love helping people make really important things happen.  I just wish more people would ask us about how to reduce their taxes through gifts.  It’s so frustrating when someone realizes AFTER the fact that their gift could have cost them a lot less!”

Genane Peniak, Associate Campaign Director

“It is my sincere pleasure to speak and meet with our donors to hear about why they choose to support The Princess Margaret with a gift in their Will. Our donors are special and it’s their uniqueness that inspires me in the work that I do every day.”

Connie Tsui, Campaign Director

"When I started my career 17 years ago, I told myself I would never be ready to raise funds for Princess Margaret Cancer Centre because the cause was just too sad and painful. After having received great care as a patient several years ago, I now look at this place very differently. Everyone working at the Cancer Centre, regardless of the nature of their work, commits themselves to providing the best care they can and working towards conquering cancer in our lifetime. I see the same level of conviction among my colleagues at The Foundation, who are motivated not only by the Cancer Centre staff, but by our donor community, who are equally eager to help find a cure. The global status that The Princess Margaret holds today is due largely to our generous donors. There is hope, and it’s a great joy and privilege for me to come to work every day."
