PLAINSBORO, N.J. (April 30, 2015) – Deliberations are complete and final votes cast for the winners of the 2015 Giants of Cancer Care™ Award recognizing individuals who have achieved landmark success in the field of oncology. Twelve honorees have been chosen from a pool of elite national and international physicians who have made outstanding contributions to tumor-specific specialties, scientific advances, community outreach, immuno-oncology, or supportive/palliative care. The winners will be announced on Friday, May 29, during the 3rd Annual Giants of Cancer Care Awards reception in Chicago from 8:30 to 11 p.m. CDT at the Chicago Illuminating Company, at 2110 S. Wabash Avenue. Please check back on after the ceremony for the results.

The Giants of Cancer Care Award honors the tireless efforts of physicians and researchers who improve patient care, develop groundbreaking treatments, and prolong the lives of those with cancer. Candidates for the third annual Giants of Cancer Care Awards were nominated and voted on by a jury of their peers. The nomination process was open to a national audience, encouraging oncologists and hematologists to nominate colleagues, mentors or other researchers who have had a significant impact in the field of oncology. A selection committee of eminent oncologists, educators, clinicians and researchers then considered each final nominee’s body of work, including clinical impact, significant contributions, and overall accomplishments in order to select this year’s winners.

“This dynamic program honors not only the oncology trailblazers of today, but also inspires ideas and aspirations of a new generation—potential Giants of Cancer Care in the years to come,” states Jack Lepping, vice chairman at Michael J. Hennessy Associates, Inc., parent company to OncLive/Giants of Cancer Care.
