For 30 years, Dr. Russell Fuhrer served as a physician leader of radiation oncology, demonstrating excellence in patient care and innovation in radiation therapy for prostate cancer. Dr. Fuhrer passed away on November 13, 2023.

Doctor Fuhrer

To honor his legacy, The AHN Cancer Institute launched a $250,000 campaign to name the Collaboration Conference Center and support innovative research to improve patient outcomes.

To date, over 100 gifts and nearly $200,000 have been received in his honor.

These are a few kind words from grateful patients:

“Dr. Fuhrer was a caring, patient-centered physician. I sincerely believe the treatment he provided me was life-saving, and it was all done in a calm, confident manner.”

“Dr. Fuhrer recommended and oversaw my radiation treatment just before he retired. His knowledge, bedside manner, and sense of humor were touching at this difficult time.”
