The Shingleton Award is our highest volunteer honor. Dr. William W. Shingleton, founding father and emeritus director of the Duke Comprehensive Cancer Center, is the inspiration behind this prestigious award. The Shingleton Award recognizes the outstanding service and generosity of individuals committed to advancing the fight against cancer. Over the years, Duke Cancer Institute has honored many individuals, couples and families for their generosity. Photo: Harry Rhoads accepts the 2016 Shingleton Award from Michael B.
