The American Cancer Society turned 100 in May 2013, and as part of the commemoration, is featuring stories of 100 people who have either impacted — or been touched by — ACS programs. Oncologist Thomas Keating, a member of the Class of 1978, is among the “ACS 100 Stories of Hope.”

Keating shares the story of receiving a phone call from his parents while at Bowdoin. News that his younger brother had been diagnosed with leukemia set Keating on a course that has made him an important part of the cancer community in Maine. Also doing important work in the effort is Judy Fortin ’83, who works as the American Cancer Society’s national media relations director.


  1. Janice Collins (1978) says:

    Congratulations to Tom for his compassion and dedication to patient care!

  2. Christa Cornell '75 says:

    My experience leaves no doubt that Tom, as well as so many working in oncology at Midcoast, has a huge and positive impact. Congrats on the well-deserved award.

  3. This recognition is well deserved. Thank you for your dedication to your patients and for your advocacy for quality oncology care.
