Statement of Robert Uzzo, MD, MBA, FACS, Fox Chase Cancer Center President & CEO, on the death of Brian Kozera

PHILADELPHIA (August 17, 2022)—Brian Kozera lived his life according to a very simple, yet powerful mantra: Persevere, prevail.  A dear member of our Fox Chase Cancer Center community, Brian was a cancer survivor (or cancer thriver, as he would say), fundraiser, and friend who inspired us with his resolve, his passionate spirit, and his selfless dedication to others. It is with deep sadness that I share news of his unexpected passing on August 13 in a biking accident. Brian was 44.
