Award Honors Boston Cancer Survivor Who Gives Back
Date:5/19/2008

ific meeting. Each year, ASTRO partners with local patient advocacy groups that help patients and their families cope with a diagnosis of cancer. Volunteers from these organizations then participate in an exhibit during ASTRO's meeting to help educate the doctors, nurses, therapists and scientists attending the meeting on their services for patients and help raise money for their causes.

"Cancer survivors are a vital link in the battle against this disease. Their experience has caused many to become vocal advocates of cancer funding and research as a way to help lessen the blow of the disease on future generations," said Laura I. Thevenot, ASTRO CEO. "Our goal with this award is honor an individual who is helping pave the way to a cure for cancer and helping others cope with this disease."
