Dr. Patrick J. Boland is a native of Monasterevin, County Kildare, Ireland. Dr. Boland is a senior member of the Orthopaedic Oncology Service department of Surgery at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, where he specializes in the surgical management of malignant and benign tumors of the bone, including those of the spine and pelvis, and soft tissue sarcomas of the extremities. He also specializes in the management of cancer of lung, breast and other organs when they spread to the bone.
With the generous assistance of the Irish community in New York, Dr. Boland has been able to assist in the education of Irish Doctors by affording them the opportunity to study at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and return to Ireland with newly acquired expertise.
Dr. Boland is also involved in extensive research activities, including ongoing clinical research in sacral tumors and in the assessment of quality of life in patients with metastatic bone cancer. He has also authored and co-authored numerous chapters and scientific papers on surgery for tumors of extremities and the spine. He is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons; a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in England, and a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.
The name “Team Trinity” was developed by organizers when Eileen Collum Mannion was asked by the Westchester Chapter for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to be one of their Champions of Hope. Though the challenge was daunting, it was still one that could be accomplished by assembling a group of Irish Americans with a great desire to help. Team Trinity also came together to reverse any negative portrayals of the Irish immigrant and Irish Americans.
In conjunction with the banquet, a souvenir journal will be published and an auction held that evening to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. (Deadline for receipt of ads and payment for tables is April 30th 2012.)
