Passion drives Dr. Vugrin to lead cancer advocacy
Every cancer has a story.
There’s a first name, last name, mom, dad, siblings, grandparents and an address, said Dr. Davor Vugrin.
Not every cancer has a cure or a prevention recommendation, he said, but his passion stems from the desire to educate people about those that do.
Margaret Vugrin, his wife of 44 years, said she remembers the day in early 2000 when her husband walked into their home after a work day and told her he’d seen goals set by the American Cancer Society to raise awareness and encourage people to get screened for colon cancer.
