Dr. Fish is the founder of the Survivors Facing Forward Program, a clinical long-term follow-up program for survivors of childhood cancer, 70 percent of whom develop a chronic illness related to their cancer treatment.
"As an actor, I have had the chance to play heroes on screen, but families facing the real-life threat of cancer are the true heroes," said Facinelli, a father of three known for his roles in the Twilight movies and on TV's Nurse Jackie.
"Aflac is proud to honor the Zuch family, Dr. Fish, and Nurse Slaven with a 2013 Duckprints Award for their dedicated service to children facing cancer," said Kathelen Amos, president of the Aflac Foundation, which has given more than $85 million to children’s cancer causes in the last 20 years. "By leaving their large footprints on this worthy cause, they have demonstrated the values that our company, our employees, and our independent sales agents hold dear—that being there for others in their time of need is a very admirable mission."
