The Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation is deeply saddened by the passing of Dale F. Frey, past Chairman of its Board of Directors, one of its greatest champions and dear friend. Through his vision, passion and relentless dedication to cancer research, he had a lasting impact on human life. Under Dale’s leadership for over 16 years, the Foundation grew exponentially and funded top young scientists in cancer research whose discoveries have dramatically advanced progress against cancer. He led the Foundation with the same wisdom and entrepreneurial spirit he used as the first Chairman of General Electric Asset Management.  In 2010, the Dale F. Frey Award for Breakthrough Scientists was established in his honor to support the most outstanding young cancer researchers in the nation.  Our hearts go out to his wife, Betty Ann, and his children and grandchildren.
