StevenOn February 14, 2015 Steve Gordon, LAc passed away from cancer. The news of his diagnosis was a huge shock to Steve, his family, friends and colleagues. An incredible irony, given his expertise and long service in the field of Integrative Oncology. Steve spent years treating women and men with cancer, integrating Chinese Medicine with allopathic care, literally saving lives. Ultimately his family and friends were to witness his passing, from the very illness that he supported so many in fighting. One of his colleagues said it best. “The world is less bright for his passing.”

Steve had a great spirit and shared his gifts with thousands.

It has been a process trying to pick up the pieces of his work and the field will never be the same. We know he would want that continued, that what he brought to his patients, will live on every time we remember him and what he taught us. It is important to offer resources to those who are still looking here and elsewhere for care and healing.
