Meet Stéphane - Senior Product Manager Lung Cancer
Bristol-Myers Squibb Canada
The reality is that most of us will be touched by cancer in our lifetime. For some, it’s a personal journey. For others, it’s a friend, a spouse or a child. For Stephane, it was his grandfather who lost his battle with lung cancer almost 25 years ago.
Reflecting on his role at Bristol-Myers Squibb Canada as Senior Product Manager, Lung Cancer, Stephane has a unique opportunity to work on a disease that not only took his loved one, but is the number one cancer killer. “It is an opportunity to make a difference and this is my way to make sense of my journey.”
“It is an opportunity to make a difference and this is my way to make sense of my journey.”
For Stephane, doing a good jobs means that soon, all eligible patients will have access to treatments that will give them a chance for long-term survival. He believes that achieving this takes team work, making sure all the internal dots are connected and ensuring the right brand strategy is implemented to connect with the medical community.
One patient who remains top of mind is Lynne. “I was so impressed by her resilience and positive energy in the face of the disease. Despite going through numerous lines of therapy, she continued to find the power to fight and to do the activities she loves and to set long-term goals.”
Lynne’s story repeatedly re-energizes Stephane and his goal to provide more survival for more patients.
What is Stephane working for? He’s working to help Canadians live cancer-free.
