Thank you!!! I am super pumped to advocate, and participate, and support the cause however way I can. I will look into some of the conferences. The only thing that will stop me from being there is if I have to be with my mom in Vancouver, or if I can’t get time away from work. But I plan to support, inperson, online, fundraise, whatever it takes.
Fay….as Gavin mentioned, we attend several conferences per year. Not sure what is scheduled for 2017 and GI ASCO San Francisco happened end of February, but the majority of conferences will be on the East Coast. I don’t know of a conference coming up in your neck of the woods.
I am glad you are asking, dear Fay, we are looking to increase our advocates residing throughout the US and the world.
Marion would know much more about this and no doubt she will be along soon to let you know what is upcoming etc in the USA. I know that ASCO will be at around the end of May or start of June as usual in Chicago and I know that we always have a large booth there in the advocates hall. Think there may be a GI conference in SF as well but not sure if that has happened or not for 17.
Maybe you will get to meet everyone there or elsewhere too!
