The Cancer Survivors Hall of Fame Dinner is CR&T’s signature event – a celebration of courageous cancer survivors and the family, friends, and medical experts who are determined to find a cure.  On November 12, nearly 200 guests joined us at New York City’s elegant Essex House for our 22nd Annual Hall of Fame Dinner, honoring two remarkable individuals who have played a role in the fight against cancer.

Ko-Chung Lin, PhD, Founder and CEO of PharmaEssentia Corp., received the Humanitarian Award for his commitment to improving the health and quality of life for people with myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) and other diseases.  Our Cancer Survivor honoree was Dan Shapiro, PhD, Vice Dean for for Faculty and Administrative Affairs at Penn State University.  A Hodgkin’s lymphoma survivor, Dr. Shapiro has helped raise awareness of cancer through his books and talks to audiences throughout the U.S.

Dave Price, NBC 4 New York weather anchor, was the inspiring and gracious master of ceremonies. Anne Templeton and Barbara Silver were the hard-working dinner committee co-chairs. 

CR&T is deeply grateful to our friends and guests, who make this event a great success, year after year.
