Director’s Circle

The Advisory Board of the O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center at UAB will host its 37th annual ArtBLINK Gala in a virtual format on Feb. 4, 2022. Although attendees will not gather in The Kirklin Clinic of UAB Hospital as in years past, the Advisory Board will still celebrate loyal friends of the O’Neal Cancer Center as its 2022 Director’s Circle Honorees, Janie and David Brown.

The ArtBLINK Director’s Circle is a membership program that offers people an opportunity to invest in and engage with the O’Neal Cancer Center. Members’ investments support high-priority initiatives at the O’Neal Cancer Center, including research projects and patient navigator programs.

This year, we are proud to honor Director’s Circle members, Janie and David Brown for their longstanding, significant commitment to brain cancer research. Through their family’s personal battle with brain cancer, they have led the efforts to raise over $1.5 million for brain cancer research and to help establish the William Austin Brown Endowed Professorship. Their philanthropic efforts helped the O’Neal Cancer Center continue to recruit and retain outstanding clinician scientists, like Dr. Burt Nabors, who hopes to one day find a cure for brain cancer.
