ASTRO, Gilda's Club Chicago join to promote cancer survivorship

As part of an initiative to give back to the communities in the cities visited during its annual scientific meetings, the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) is partnering with Gilda's Club Chicago to raise awareness of cancer survivorship issues.

Gilda's Club Chicago will work with ASTRO by participating in the Survivor Circle exhibit at ASTRO's 51st Annual Meeting, scheduled for November 1-5, 2009, at McCormick Place West in Chicago. The Survivor Circle was created to recognize those living with a diagnosis of cancer. This year, it will focus on the programs offered by Chicago-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 this Gilda's Club. Gilda's Club received this opportunity, along with a $10,000 grant, through the Survivor Circle Grant Program. They were one of two groups chosen from 10 applications received this year.

"We are excited to work with such a well-established, nationally recognized organization," Tim R. Williams, President of ASTRO said. "Our patients and their families rely on the programs offered by groups like Gilda's Club Chicago and their programs are fully deserving of this grant and the opportunity to educate our members about the work they do to assist those living with cancer."

"We are honored to be selected by ASTRO to receive this grant and to be showcased at their exciting 51st Annual Meeting," LauraJane Hyde, CEO of Gilda's Club Chicago noted. "To be able to connect their global leadership with the work we are doing in Chicago to build welcoming communities for those affected by cancer is a great partnership."
