Topic: ASCO 2013 and the Cholangiocarcinoma Patient Advocates
The ASCO (American Society of Clinical Oncology) begins Friday, June 28th.
Percy, Barbara, Stella, Linda, Kim, and I will be attending. As mentioned previously, Linda has received the RAN Research Advocate Grant for patient advocacy training.
The below link will explain our purpose and presence at this conference. Please take a look at the ASCO-Sponsored Patient Advocacy Booth where Barbara and Stella will be informing physicians and others about our cancer, handing out brochures and Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation information packages, present a slide show of our foundation and talk about our discussion board and the most incredible members that have joined. Percy will be attending plenary sessions and look over the poster boards for information pertaining to our disease. For me, I will be all over the place, attending special meetings and sessions, connect with other advocates, and meet up with those making special appointment for a private talk.
