I wanted to inform everyone that groups similar to ours are being created in lots of places. A new article that came out recently features Laura Greco who is working on raising lung cancer awareness in the Albany area. A link to her article at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute can be found here
There is a great even being held on May 20th, run by Hildy Grossman and the Upstage Lung Cancer team. The event features live music, and raffles for great prizes. If you are interested the link is here, and it is being held at The Boston Red Sox Jimmy Fund Auditorium 35 Binney Street, Boston, at 7:30pm.
Due to Dr. Colson’s ever increasing OR schedule and her strong desire to attend and participate in the forum, we are in the process of gradually switching the day that the forum meets. This change will be from the second Wednesday to the second Monday. Please pay attention to the emails that will be sent out a week in advance as to what day the forum will meet. We are hoping to have the new day completely integrated by November of this year. We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause and look forward to seeing you all at the forum.
