George Davis, to Evergreen, is a Strategic Advisor who is well-known for his success in investing, building, and managing biotech, IT, and software companies, often from the start-up stage. He is an active leader in the tech and innovation community, serving on a number of boards, including Betamore, UMBC’s Research Park Corporation, Association for Enterprise Growth, and the Fearless-backed Hutch Studio. What is little known about George is his work as a Johns Hopkins Cancer Survivor Patient Advocate.
In 2020 & 2021, George served as a Patient Mentor to the Orioles’ first baseman and designated hitter Trey Mancini, who was diagnosed with Stage 3 Colon Cancer in March of 2020. Trey had gotten a routine physical for the blood draw showed that his hemoglobin and hematocrit were low. It was then that a colonoscopy was scheduled, and the tumor was found. After a year of treatment, he is now cancer-free. Trey is fortunate as colorectal cancer is the third deadliest cancer in the United States — after lung and prostate in men and lung and breast in women. What is not often realized is that half of all new colorectal cancer diagnoses are in people 66 or younger. The most challenging part is that those diagnosed with colorectal cancer often have experienced no signs or symptoms associated with the disease.
“It’s sad to see Trey leave Baltimore and not be an O. He has been an inspiring light to Baltimore, he continuously gave fans hope. But I’m happy for Trey, I know he’s going to be great on the Astro’s and he will continue to make Baltimore proud. Trey will always be a F16HTER” George Davis stated.

Orioles’ Trey Mancini releases statement after being traded to Astros
The Baltimore Orioles traded Trey Mancini to the Houston Astros, the team announced on Monday.
The move came one day ahead of Tuesday’s trade deadline. The Orioles received right-handed pitchers Seth Johnson from the Tampa Bay Rays and Chayce McDermott from the Astros in a three-way trade.
“Words don’t do justice what you mean to me, so I’ll keep it simple,” Mancini said in a statement. “Playing for the Orioles organization and for the city of Baltimore was a dream come true for me. However, my love for Baltimore transcends baseball. My life was saved here. I met my dream woman and soon-to-be wife here. I met my hero Mo here. A huge piece of my heart will always belong to Baltimore. To every teammate along the way, to every coach, trainer, and staff member, to both front offices, to the Angelos family, and most importantly, to the fans – thank you for the best ten years imaginable. I love you all.”
