Date:6/13/2011

PHILADELPHIA The American Association for Cancer Research is pleased to announce that CR AACR's magazine for cancer survivors, their families and caregivers won first place in the 2011 National Media Awards of the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons. Separately, it received three additional awards from the Greater Philadelphia Professional Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.

"We are honored and humbled to receive such wonderful recognitions by two esteemed organizations for the outstanding reporting in CR magazine," said Margaret Foti, Ph.D., M.D. (h.c.), chief executive officer of the AACR. "CR prides itself on delivering accurate and important stories to survivors, patients and advocates, and these awards give us confidence that we have achieved our goal of providing new knowledge to these individuals."

The article "A Step (or Leap, or Jump, or Stretch) in the Right Direction," written by Rabiya S. Tuma, Ph.D., received first place for outstanding achievement in print reporting about colon and rectal disease, awarded by the 2011 National Media Awards of the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons.

The article takes a close look at the role of exercise in extending and improving quality of life for colorectal cancer survivors. Tuma builds the story around several studies, showing the effect of exercise on survivors, and provides user-friendly exercise tools. The article was published in the Spring/Summer 2010 issue of CR.

In addition, the Greater Philadelphia Professional Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists honored CR with three awards in its print category:

  • Second place in the Non-deadline Writing category (for publications with a circulation of 40,000-75,000) to Jenny Song for three articles on the personal side of cancer: "The Measure of a Life," "Stepping Up" and "Too Scared to Not Get a Mammogram?";

  • Second place in the Health and Science Story category to Sue Rochman for "The Culture and Cancer of Rural Poverty"; and

  • Third place in the Public Service category to Cynthia Ryan, Ph.D., for "Homeless With Cancer."
