CSC is pleased to announce J. Neil Bassett as the new chair of the Headquarters Board of Directors. Neil is Vice President, Investments, at UBS Financial Services and has long been involved in community service.
In 2003, he joined the board of The Wellness Community of Arizona, where he served as chair and treasurer. In early 2008, Neil was elected to the Cancer Support Community Headquarters Board of Directors, where most recently, he was board vice chair.
Having lost both his parents and an aunt to cancer, Neil understands first-hand the importance of social and emotional support for patients as well as families, friends and caregivers.
“What makes the Cancer Support Community so phenomenal is that the social and emotional support we provide is proven to have substantive value – and that we provide our valued services free of charge,” Neil said in a December email to CSC supporters.
While serving on CSC’s headquarters board, Neil has also chaired the Board Affiliate Focus Committee and has been a member of the Finance Committee.
CSC is excited to kick off the New Year with the support and dedication of Neil and the entire Board of Directors. We would also like to thank outgoing co-chairs Laura Wheat and Chuck Scheper for their steadfast support and leadership.
