Eric Montross, a beloved champion for young cancer patients

The UNC community continues to mourn the loss of Eric Montross, a beloved champion for young cancer patients. Eric’s dedication to serving others was undeniable and began during his student-athlete days as a Tar Heel basketball star.

The Montross family invites you to honor Eric by continuing his work with your gift to The Be Loud! Sophie Foundation Fund, supporting the UNC Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Cancer Program Endowment. This vital program is one of the largest and most successful of its kind and helps improve care for young adults battling cancer.

With your help, we can continue Eric’s work and make the experience of being in the hospital better for all our young patients and their families.
