Dr. Robert J. Arceci, pictured here with a tiny cancer survivor at the 5th annual GCU Foundation Run to Fight Children’s Cancer last March, died Monday morning from injuries he sustained in a traffic accident in Scottsdale. Arceci was a dedicated and brilliant childhood cancer researcher at Phoenix Children’s Hospital and the inspiration for the “White Cell Rock,” a dance that medical professionals, first responders and others learned and performed to improve the spirits of children with cancer.
