Date:9/18/2013

Fairfax, Va., September 18, 2013 The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) has selected two Georgia cancer patient support groups, The Cancer Foundation of Northeast Georgia and the South Georgia Medical Center, Pearlman Cancer Center, to receive ASTRO's 2013 Survivor Circle grants. Each organization will receive $8,000 to recognize their efforts and provide direct support for their organization's work supporting cancer patients. The two organizations will also be featured in the Survivor Circle in the Exhibit Hall during ASTRO's 55th Annual Meeting, September 22-25, 2013, in Atlanta. Since its inception in 2003, ASTRO's Survivor Circle has provided more than $250,000 to patient support organizations.

"These two organizations, The Cancer Foundation of Northeast Georgia and the South Georgia Medical Center, Pearlman Cancer Center, are extraordinary examples of how important it is to provide support for our patientsfrom diagnosis through to survivorship," said Colleen A.F. Lawton, MD, FASTRO, president of ASTRO's Board of Directors. "ASTRO is proud to partner with these groups in the Survivor Circle to share their work with our Annual Meeting attendees, and ASTRO commends their outstanding programs for cancer patients."

The mission of the Cancer Foundation of Northeast Georgia, a non-profit organization based in Athens, Ga., is to help alleviate the financial burdens facing cancer patients by providing emergency (within 24 hours) monetary assistance to eligible cancer patients in its 18-county service area. Since starting program in 2008, the foundation has provided more than $300,000 in financial assistance to nearly 800 cancer patients for basic life needs such as rent, mortgage, utilities, nutrition, medication, insurance co-payments and transportation. Everyone who applies for assistance and who meets the income guidelines receives assistance from the Foundation. The Foundation is currently on track to exceed their goal of $135,00
