Executive Health

Nutrition, fitness & executive health: Lifesaving checkup

Amy Keller | 12/28/2016

When the Orlando Magic decided to send its executives for an annual physical in 2011, Pat Williams was the first on the list. “I didn’t want to do it,” the NBA team’s senior vice president recalls. “It required getting up before dawn and being out there at 7 a.m. with no breakfast.”

Looking back, he’s glad he went. After a full day of testing at Florida Hospital Celebration, a physician told him that something didn’t look quite right with his blood work and “probably should be checked.”

More tests revealed that Williams, then 70, was suffering from multiple myeloma, a rare cancer of the blood.
