CRC organized a Cancer Moonshot Summit in Ithaca on June 29 in conjunction with Vice-President Joe Biden’s National Cancer Moonshot Summit which was held simultaneously in Washington, DC.
Thank you to our speakers who shared their personal experiences related to cancer from a variety of perspectives – patients, survivors, family members, researchers, community supporters and more. Our speakers included Skip Hewitt, Donna Berich, Jum Warritay, Sharon Nelson, Beth Brunelle, Laura Austen, Adam Goodwin, Jason Hungerford, Greg Fry, Lee Ginenthal, Bob Weiss, Fred Vanderzee, Cal Walker and Jerry Dietz.
Special kudos to Michelle Courtney Berry who served as moderator and who provided a virtuosic summary of both the words and spirit of the event. Michelle, a local entrepreneur and healing arts/stress reduction expert, is a former Tompkins County Poet Laureate and City Alderperson.
