STAY TUNED TO CRT.ORG FOR MORE INFORMATION.
On November 13, 2018, more than 200 guests came together to celebrate CR&T's 50th Anniversary at New York City's Essex House. Always a very special evening, the Cancer Survivors Hall of Fame Dinner celebrated three extraordinary individuals who have contributed to the fight against cancer. Congressman Mark DeSaulnier received the Humanitarian Award for his commitment to improving doctor-patient communication, ensuring that patients and their families have the tools they need to cope with a cancer diagnosis. Alan Hobson, our Cancer Survivor honoree, not only reached the summit of Mount Everest, but successfully battled against leukemia and squamous cell carcinoma. We also were proud to present a special award to Richard T. Silver, MD, who founded CR&T in 1968 and who is internationally renowned for his contributions to blood cancer research.
Raphael Miranda, Emmy Award-winning NBC 4 meteorologist and a longtime friend of CR&T, served as master of ceremonies. CR&T's president, Thomas Silver, acknowledged the Dinner Committee Co-Chairs, Anne Templeton and Barbara Silver, for their hard work and dedication to CR&T's mission. He also thanked the Board of Directors and Medical Advisory Board for their vision and commitment to CR&T. "Most importantly," he told the audience, "I want to thank you - our friends and supporters. You are our family, and we look forward to the day when our family comes together to celebrate our victory over cancer."
A highlight of the evening was a special 50th Anniversary video, in which friends and volunteers spoke about the organization's achievements and what CR&T means to them. You can view the video here.
