2018 Guest Speaker: Chuck Pagano
Guess Speaker

CURE Media Group, the nation's leading digital and print media enterprise focused on cancer patients, is proud to announce that former all-American NFL coach and player Chuck Pagano, a motivational speaker and cancer survivor, will be the guest speaker for the CURE® 2018 Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Heroes recognition ceremony. Pagano was named head coach of the Indianapolis Colts in 2012. Prior to that, he served as the defensive coordinator for the Baltimore Ravens in 2011. He was diagnosed with acute promyelocytic leukemia and underwent treatment at the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center in Indianapolis for three months during the Colts’ 2012 season. On November 5 of that year, his doctors announced that he was in remission. To support Pagano, two dozen of the Colts' players and two of their cheerleaders shaved their heads as part of a movement known as "ChuckStrong." .
