“These extraordinary individuals come from many disciplines and backgrounds, but what they share in common is their daily dedication to extend ‘the warm hand of service’ to cancer patients,” said Richard C. Wender, MD, national volunteer president of the American Can cer Society. “These awards recognize the unsung heroes of cancer care who give hope, comfort and the very best care to cancer patients and their families. Today we recognize just a few of the many cancer care providers whose work is often overlooked, and who make a real difference in the lives of cancer patients.”

The American Cancer Society has recognized cancer caregivers through the Lane Adams Quality of Life Award since 1988. The awards committee includes long-time national Society volunteers, including Vicki Adams Quan, the daughter of Lane W. Adams, the former executive vice president of the Society who coined the term the “warm hand of service” and made attention to compassionate care a legacy of his service.
