The Japan Society of Clinical Oncology meeting was held earlier this week in Tokyo. Carole Seffrin, a Society volunteer, breast cancer survivor, and wife of American Cancer Society Chief Executive Officer John R. Seffrin, addressed an audience of 500 cancer patients during a forum on psychosocial research and support. Seffrin reflected upon her personal experience with the American Cancer Society’s programs and highlighted the Society’s broader mission to engage and empower survivors. Co-organizers of this event included Japan Cancer Society and International Union Against Cancer (UICC) representatives. Keynote speakers included Tadao Kakizoe, President of Japan's National Cancer Center; Dr. Louis Denis of the International Union Against Cancer; and two well-known Japanese survivors.
