A Eulogy by HRH Princess Dina Mired to Professor Massimo Crespi

Professor Massimo Crespi was truly an extraordinary man… A man of many achievements… Being one of the first in Italy to use the digestive endoscopy for screening and early diagnosis, the author of more than 200 scientific papers and the Secretary General of the MTCC for many years. His career in fighting Cancer was most certainly admirable.

Professor Massimo has attained many titles, however, the most important title that I prefer to add to his name is that of Professor Massimo Crespi DOH; Doctor of Humanity, because that is what he was. He could have been just happy to collect academic titles and accolades, but he chose to go beyond the call of duty and extended his knowledge, effort and heart to benefit humanity. I am so glad that I had the privilege and honor to know and meet Professor Massimo Crespi.

Professor Massimo will surely be missed, but his legacy will forever live on… And I am certain that this task force will continue to make strides in the fight against Cancer driven by Professor Massimo’s spirit and vision for years to come… until we succeed in making cancer a disease of the past.
