Nancy Kane, program director at Concord Hospital Payson Center for Cancer Care, was awarded the American Cancer Society’s St. George National Award. The award is given to volunteers for distinguished service to their community in support of the society’s mission of saving lives from cancer.

As an oncology nurse, Kane began her volunteer efforts with the American Cancer Society while she was in nursing school at Simmons College in Boston, helping with clerical tasks at the society’s Boston office in the 1970s. She was elected to the board of directors of the Hillsboro North Unit of the former New Hampshire Division in 1990. The following year she became unit president and was appointed to the New Hampshire Division Board, which she would eventually lead as president. She was one of the founding board members of the New England Division. She served as chief medical officer of the New England Division for two years, then as chairwoman of the board until her retirement from the board in June.

She joined Concord Hospital in 2003 as the program director of the Payson Center or Cancer Care, which was on the verge of opening.

James Thorne, vice president of operations at Concord Hospital said, “Nancy has exhibited the same passion and commitment to patients at Concord Hospital as she has in her many years of volunteer service with the American Cancer Society.”
