We love our community and all of the people who help to make GRACE what it is.  Jim (@JimC Forum Moderator ) and Janine (@catdander forum moderator) are outstanding, and their knowledge and willingness to help people who come to GRACE, as well as their dedication is nothing short of amazing.  We also love people we see once a year local to Chicago who come volunteer at our booth to give weary staff a break (our friend Dan each year helps out at the booth, James has in previous years graciously offered office space for early morning filming…). Every little bit of connection we have made with faculty, users of GRACE, patient advocates, and other advocacy groups shows that this community goes beyond GRACE as an organization, it is a group of people helping people, giving where they can and sharing information to help others.  When we help others, we help ourselves.   

Jim and his significant other, Lisa – as always, met us in Chicago to join us for a small gathering – where we took the opportunity to thank everyone for their very important work. We are so grateful for the faculty, and for all of the other people who help to make GRACE happen.    

We were once again honored to be part of the ASCO sponsored Patient Advocacy Booth, where we shared our information with other advocacy groups and oncologists from all over the world.  Jim and Lisa were also able to join us for a short volunteer stint in the exhibits hall, where they were able to walk through the booths and see what happens when 40,000 oncologists from all over the world convene at McCormick Place.   

Jim C, moderator extraordinaire, knowing our community well, posted earlier in the forums a link to the ASCO abstracts for people to review, with the following perfect and short description of ASCO – “Each year the oncology world gathers in Chicago in the first week of June for the ASCO (American Society of Clinical Oncology) conference, at which much of the year’s major research findings are unveiled”. 

Though post-meeting the abstracts are not now available, as we edit our videos from ASCO to share with our community, we invite you to review the meeting information they have made available.   The ASCO meeting library is available here: and other good info from the attendee resource center can be found here:  

The Washington Post did a nice overview about ASCO here:
