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.
Survivor Circle Grant
Each year we offer two Survivor Circle grants of up to $12,500 to cancer support organizations. The Survivor Circle Grant program is an excellent opportunity for support organizations to advance their projects and get some recognition in the ASTRO community. To date we have awarded more than $500,000 in Survivor Circle Grants.
Breast Cancer Angels and the Cancer Support Community of Los Angeleseach received a grant of $12,500 during the 2023 ASTRO Annual Meeting in San Diego.
