A survivor is anyone living with cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of their life.
Read stories shared by cancer survivors and their caregivers where they share their stories about their personal experience with cancer. Their stories provide support and inspiration for others fighting cancer, and help communicate the importance of access to treatments and quality care.
In 2003, ASTRO created the Survivor Circle as a way to honor cancer survivors. Each year, ASTRO awards two grants to patient support organizations and features them at the Survivor Circle at the Annual Meeting. It was our hope that by partnering with local organizations in the states that host our meeting, we would be able to not only give back to the states we visit, but also help raise awareness of these important organizations among our members.
