We have lost a great Canadian and the Foundation has lost a friend.
Mr. Milton Wong passed away on December 31st of pancreatic cancer at the age of 72. Milton was a dear friend and trusted advisor to me personally and to the Canadian Stem Cell Foundation as a member of our President’s Advisory Council.
He was also one of the Founding Directors of the Stem Cell Network and was one of the earliest champions and inspirations for establishing the Canadian Stem Cell Foundation. He will be deeply missed.
As a business leader and philanthropist, Milton was creative, a big thinker, and an inspiration to so many. More importantly he cared for people, had time for people, and touched everyone and anyone that he met. His legacy lives on in his family, his many close friends, and the important “ideas” and “organizations” that he brought to life with his energy and compassion.
