On Saturday, September 16, 2017, patients, caregivers, family members and friends joined GRACE in Cleveland at the Taussig Cancer Center for a full day of discussion on Targeted Therapies in Lung Cancer. We are thrilled that people joined us for this amazing and informative day. Huge thanks to all of the faculty who spent their Saturday in Cleveland with our community, and thanks also to those organizations who sponsored this event - Astra Zeneca, Takeda, Boehringer Ingelheim, Ignyta, Novartis, Genentech, Caris, and Guardant Health.
