Date:4/30/2009

ncology nurses serve as a patient's advocate and help them manage the side effects of cancer therapy," said Beth A. Zubal, RN, oncology nurse practitioner at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri. "We are happy to be providing nurses with important educational tools."

The campaign will kick off at the Annual ONS Congress on April 30, 2009 in San Antonio, TX, where leading oncology experts and Jan Ping will host an informational seminar on coping with the appearance-related side effects that can accompany EGFR inhibitor treatments, along with other tips nurses can provide to both male and female patients for looking their best during treatment. Seminar attendees will be invited to a meet-and-greet reception with Jan Ping and guest speakers, and will be supplied with educational materials.

Jan Ping, an Emmy(R) Award-winning make-up artist known for her work on E! Entertainment's Chelsea Lately Show and the Tyra Banks Show, and her work with celebrities such as Cindy Crawford and Warren Beatty, was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 45 and knows from her own experience that a patient's body changes while undergoing cancer treatment. But despite her altered appearance, Ping maintained a positive outlook, and she will lend her beauty and skin care expertise to the campaign to help patients feel confident about their appearance during treatment. "I'm excited to be taking part in an important program that provides oncology nurses with everyday tips they can teach patients to boost confidence during a difficult time."

Following the campaign launch at the Annual ONS Congress, local training seminars will also be held in the second half of this year in New York City, Los Angeles, and Miami. To obtain more information, please call ONSEdge at 877-588-3343 or visit www.onsedge.com.
