“It is such an honor to work along with partners like Takeda and our advocacy groups to end the stigma and empower anyone who has been impacted by lung cancer,” said Mike Hennessy Jr., president and CEO of MJH Life Sciences™, the parent company of CURE Media Group. “Together as one community, our second annual Lung Cancer Heroes™ awards program will continue to raise awareness, and most importantly acknowledge and celebrate the remarkable individuals contributing to advancing research and improve lung cancer patient outcomes.”
Nominations can be submitted online by colleagues, advocates, patients, friends and family of the remarkable individuals from across the globe who have significantly impacted the lung cancer community. Three winners will be named Lung Cancer Heroes™ and awarded for their heroic contributions in the field of lung cancer or the lives of people with the disease.
“Collaborations between industry and the advocacy community are critical to advancing cutting-edge science and outsmarting cancer so that more patients can benefit from – and have access to – life-transforming medicines,” said Dion Warren, vice president, head, U.S. oncology business unit, Takeda Oncology. “We are honored to support CURE on this important initiative to increase awareness and end the stigma around lung cancer and recognize individuals who are making a difference in the lives of the more than 2 million people affected by this disease.”
The 2021 Lung Cancer Heroes® virtual celebration will be held this fall.
