Speech of Princess Dina Mered for Umberto Veronesi’s death


To: Mediterranean Task Force for Cancer Control Family


Words cannot express the deep sadness about the passing of Professor Umberto Veronesi.  Dr Umberto was no doubt a pioneer and a leader in the field of oncology and surgery. He achieved so many accolades and prominent positions in various capacities.

Most importantly he was a wonderful “human being” who cared about people and has helped and touched the lives of so many throughout his life.

I am honored to have known Dr Umberto. May his soul rest in peace.




Your Sincerely

Dina Mired

President Elect Union International For Cancer Control (UICC)
