Conquer Cancer, the ASCO Foundation is launching Close the Gap to Conquer Cancer, a campaign in response to the growing burdens facing patients with cancer, oncologists, and cancer researchers. Close the Gap to Conquer Cancer calls on everyone committed to conquering cancer to make a gift to help fund vital programs, including those providing patient resources and supporting global cancer research.
Gateway for Cancer Research℠ is investing $1.5 million dollars to create a more diverse patient population represented in oncology research and expand clinical trial access for patients from underserved and underrepresented communities.
Author, advocate, and influencer Kimberly Irvine is a two-time breast cancer survivor who shares her story to encourage others.
In her memoir, STRONG[ER+], Irvine reflects on the challenges cancer brings to patients and their families. In the excerpt below, the mom of two gives readers a glimpse into a trying moment she and her daughter endured as Irvine recovered from a chemotherapy treatment.
ALEXANDRIA, Va. - Conquer Cancer, the ASCO Foundation is pleased to announce the 2020 recipients of the Conquer Cancer – Rising Tide Foundation for Clinical Cancer Research Career Pathway Grants in Symptom Management.

Today is World Cancer Research Day, and that’s a very special one for me. You see, down at UCSF Cancer Center, my medical team calls me “a miracle and the future of medicine.”
I am here today because of decades of cancer research breakthroughs that have made it possible for patients like me to live with cancer. I am writing to ask for your help today because we need to keep the breakthroughs coming for millions of other patients and future patients all around the world.
Everyone looks good in orange.
