ASTRO, Mama's Kitchen join to promote cancer survivorship
Date:10/13/2010

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 Mama's Kitchen of San Diego to raise awareness of cancer survivorship issues.

Mama's Kitchen 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 Mama's Kitchen. Mama's Kitchen 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.

"Mama's Kitchen recognizes that those with cancer may be elderly, alone or extremely sick and are often not in a position to shop or cook for themselves," Anthony Zietman, President of ASTRO said. "This magnificent group organizes armies of volunteers to buy, prepare, and deliver nutritious food to these desperately needy local people. It truly represents community care and volunteerism at its best."

"Our ability to meet the nutritional needs of San Diegans affected by cancer is due to the strong community involvement in the form of both volunteer time and dollars contributed," noted Alberto Corts, Executive Director of Mama's Kitchen. "ASTRO's grant to Mama's Kitchen makes a difference in the lives of people living with cancer who are otherwise vulnerable to hunger. We are grateful for this generous grant."
