Meet the Ambassadors

Dr. Greenberg and his dog Cooper

Dr. Richard Greenberg & Cooper

Richard Greenberg, MD, FACS, professor in the department of surgical oncology and longtime Paws for the Cause supporter, and his dog, Cooper, join us as our Ambassadors for 2017. They will walk in loving memory of his late wife Barbara Greenberg who passed away in 2013.

Nearly 35 years ago, Dr. Greenberg began his career at Fox Chase as the first dedicated urologist. For 22 of those years, he served as Chief of the Division of Urology and Urologic Oncology.  Under his leadership, the team experienced tremendous growth and gained a national and international reputation as a leader in clinical quality, surgical innovation, clinical trials participation and clinical/translational research in the area of urologic oncology. In 2017, he stepped down from this position.

Dr. Greenberg and Cooper have participated in Paws for the Cause since 2011, competing regularly for top fundraising honors.  His dedication to the event, Fox Chase, and the patients he serves is admirable.  We hope you will join Dr. Greenberg and Cooper for this fantastic cause!
