Spring has sprung and the Cancer Support Community is well on it's way to a fruitful 2011. Hot on the heels of a recent update to our Frankly Speaking About Cancer: Colorectal Cancer
program comes our second Annual Spring Celebration, taking place April 28th in New York, NY. The return of warm weather also means a return to the road for the Amgen Tour of California with our Breakaway From Cancer partners. And we truly can't wait to share the findings of our Research and Training Institute's Cancer Survivor Registry: The Breast Cancer M.A.P. (Mind Affects the Physical) Project
in the coming months.
We've been busy behind the scenes all winter and look forward to several exciting announcements in the near future. The articles below provide a snapshot of good things to come!
