We are very proud to honor Dr. Mitchell Cairo and his family as the 2021 Dream Big Award Recipients at this year’s Dream Discover Cure Golf Tournament.
For almost 40 years Dr. Cairo has been making a difference in the lives of families battling pediatric cancer around the world. As PCRF is starting the 40th Anniversary celebration, we are truly grateful to have Dr. Cairo as our only researcher with us since our inception.
Dr. Cairo’s personal touch with families only enhances his level of excellence in care and research. His work at the Cellular Tissue and Engineering (CTEL) lab at Westchester Medical Center benefits all pediatric and adult blood and marrow transplantations programs other regenerative cellular therapy programs at Westchester Medical Center and Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital.
Working side by side with Mitch over the years is his devoted family, Ellen, Dustin and, Evan. Growing up in Chicago, attending the University of Wisconsin for his undergraduate degree before his Medical School and Residency in California at UCLA/UCSF, Mitch’s roots are the Midwest, but his heart is in his work.
