AstraZeneca, in partnership with Scientific American Custom Media, announced the winners of the third annual Cancer Community Awards (or C2 Awards). A part of the AstraZeneca YOUR Cancer program, the C2 Awards celebrate diverse individuals and organizations creating meaningful change in the lives of people with cancer and their loved ones.
Margaret Stauffer, LMFT, Chief Mission Officer at Cancer Support Community San Francisco Bay Area was awarded The President’s Award at a virtual ceremony. This top honor is selected by AstraZeneca and honors those who make a tangible and inspiring difference for patients and their loved ones.
“As we commemorate 50 years since the National Cancer Act was signed and reflect upon the extraordinary progress made in treating this disease, we are inspired by this year’s winners and finalists,” said Chatrick Paul, Head of US Oncology, AstraZeneca. “Though we still have more to do toward one day eliminating cancer mortality, especially amid a pandemic that has laid bare the disparities disproportionately faced by disadvantaged communities, these unsung heroes, through their selfless dedication, demonstrate what we can accomplish as one oncology community determined to create meaningful change for people with cancer.”
“I’m honored and humbled to be recognized by AstraZeneca for this award. There is so much great work being done in the world of cancer care and I’m proud to make a difference in the lives of people facing cancer everyday,” said Ms. Stauffer.
Rob Tufel, MSW, MPH, Chief Executive Officer of Cancer Support Community says, “It is such an honor to see Margaret recognized on the national level for her expertise and experience. Her work at Cancer Support Community has impacted thousands of cancer patients and their families and made a real difference in their quality of life.”
