Brilliant Minds and Committed Hearts…

Focus on Research symbot

I recently had the privilege of attending the American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting .  The meeting is the annual gathering of more than 25,000 doctors and healthcare professionals that work in the oncology field.   This year’s meeting was titled “Building Bridges to Conquer Cancer.” The ASCO website describes this by saying that “attendees of the 2013 Annual Meeting find cutting-edge scientific presentations and comprehensive educational content.”

I attended with  15 fellow advocates across the USA in the Focus on Research Advocate Institute as a nominee of the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance.  Prior to the meeting, we attended webinars led by Focus on Research on different scientific topics.  I’d love to share more with you about the program so if you are interested in representing advocates, just leave me a comment.

Following the meeting, each scholar wrote a summary on the meetings we attended which included the most current information  on progress in research “hot off the press.”  I represented ovarian cancer advocates so I am including the link below.  Just copy and paste it and you will be directed to the summary report  that I completed, along with my teal sisters that attended. If you would like to see the complete report on all the cancers represented, just leave me a comment and I will send it to you.   I would appreciate it if you’d forward this post on to any of your cancer contacts so more survivors can have the benefit of the current update on their cancers.  There were so many cancers represented, some very rare.  I learned so much from the other advocates and think you will, too.
