ASTRO, Emilio Nares Foundation join to promote cancer survivorship
Date:10/7/2010

As part of an initiative to give back to the cancer communities in the cities visited during its annual scientific meetings, the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) is partnering with the Emilio Nares Foundation of San Diego to raise awareness of cancer survivorship issues.

"When a child has cancer the entire family is sick," Anthony Zietman, M.D., ASTRO president and a radiation oncologist at Massachusetts General Hospital, said. "The Emilio Nares Foundation offers the kind of deep support to families that hospitals struggle to provide, everything from rides and nutritional guidance to crisis management and even bereavement counseling. It offers an invaluable and personal safety net for suffering families."

The Emilio Nares Foundation will work with ASTRO by participating in the Survivor Circle exhibit at ASTRO's 52nd Annual Meeting, scheduled for October 31-November 4, 2010, at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego. The Survivor Circle was created to recognize those living with a diagnosis of cancer. This year, it will focus on the programs offered by San Diego-area cancer organizations helping patients and their families cope with this disease. Within the Survivor Circle, there is a place for attendees to learn more about the Emilio Nares Foundation. The Emilio Nares Foundation received this opportunity, along with a $10,000 grant, through the Survivor Circle Grant Program. They were one of two groups chosen from many applications received this year.

"We are honored to have received this generous grant from ASTRO," Richard Nares, executive director of the Emilio Nares Foundation, said. "This grant will provide life-saving support to a population of children and their families who are in dire need. Increases in the cost of fuel and food have placed unimaginable new burdens on our patient families, most of whom earn less than $20,000 annually."
