Steve Abbott

Executive Director

Steve’s varied career encompassing finance, accounting, operations, treasury, marketing, and business development roles across a variety of industries has put him in good stead to lead Cincinnati Cancer Advisors. 

 

His past volunteer efforts have benefited the University of Cincinnati (UC) Cancer Center, UC Health, the American Cancer Society, ZERO—The End of Prostate Cancer, and the V Foundation, among others.  He and his wife Diana—also a cancer survivor—have spoken on cancer survivorship at a variety of oncology conferences throughout the Midwest region. 

 

An eight-year prostate cancer survivor, Steve serves as a consumer reviewer for the Prostate Cancer Research Program, a research program for which he and others have successfully lobbied the U.S. Congress for $20 million in additional funding in recent years that has funded the research for some of the most groundbreaking advanced prostate cancer drugs developed in the last quarter century.

 

“I am a firm believer that you have to be passionate about what you do. I can’t help people fight a battle like cancer if I don’t have a fervent focus on the entire journey!”
