Cancer Hope Network, ASTRO Partner to Raise Awareness of Cancer Survivorship

As part of its continued efforts to give back to the cancer communities in the cities visited during its annual scientific meetings//, the Fairfax, Virginia-based American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ASTRO) is partnering with Cancer Hope Network, to raise awareness of cancer survivorship. The Cancer Hope Network is a non-profit organization that provides one-on-one support to people undergoing treatment for cancer and to their families.

Cancer Hope Network, located in Chester, N.J., will work with ASTRO by participating in the Survivor Circle exhibit at the Society’s 48th Annual Meeting, scheduled for November 5-9, 2006, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. The Survivor Circle was created to recognize those who are living with the diagnosis of cancer. It focuses on the programs offered by local organizations to help the patients and their families cope with their treatments. Within the Survivor Circle, there is a place for visitors to view photos of activities the Cancer Hope Network offers to patients, survivors and their families and make tax deductible donations. One hundred percent of the proceeds collected will be given to local cancer programs.

Wanda Diak, Managing Director for Cancer Hope Network, noted the group’s appreciation of ASTRO’s support. “Radiation therapy is an important and widely employed treatment option for cancer patients today. It is gratifying to receive ASTRO’s support, as it will allow us to extend our
