The Accelerate Progress Tributes page is for our Patrons of Progress to use to offer support, encouragement, and remembrances for those who are involved in the daily fight against cancer and other life-threatening diseases, be they patients, caregivers, friends, family, or others so inspired.  In other words, if you were inspired by someone’s life who is or was fighting a life-threatening disease like cancer, feel free to write a tribute to them and send it our way.  Include a picture if you like.  Then click on our “How You Can Help” page for information about becoming a Patron of Progress.  If you were inspired by someone who has provided support, care, or other positive work on behalf of those fighting life-threatening diseases (perhaps a nurse, an advocate, a clinician, a friend, etc.) feel free to write a tribute to them and send it along and then check the section on “How You Can Help.”

This is a positive space to reflect, to praise, and to continue to work to humanize and bring to life the real stories of the real people affected by the systems we use to discover, develop, review, and use new therapies for patients fighting cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
