IMMUNOTHERAPY
Immunotherapy is a type of drug or medication that can block the signals that cancer cells use to “hide” from our immune system. Blocking these signals allows the immune system to fight cancer in a very different way than other treatments like chemotherapy or radiation therapy, which directly damage cancer cells.
SURVIVOR CIRCLE
ASTRO established the Survivor Circle to honor cancer survivors and support groups during our Annual Meeting. The application period for both the Survivor Circle Award and Survivor Circle Grant are now open.
