NACCDO-PAMN: Cure Cancer Sooner

The words “Cure Cancer Sooner” are the most efficient use of words – and the most meaningful choice of words I’ve seen lately. On the t-shirts of the “home team,” the Stephenson Cancer Center at the University of Oklahoma, this energetic team did an outstanding job hosting the NACCDO-PAMN conference last week. Thank you for all your hard work to make the conference such a success! Making a Difference Every Day I genuinely love attending this conference because it is such a reminder of how each of us can and do make a difference every day – in the lives of the patients we serve. It was wonderful to meet new faces, but also connect with many of our cancer center client friends and hear the terrific presentations of truly exceptional marketing and development successes. As a healthcare digital and communications agency that works with many of these prominent cancer centers, we at MERGE are so proud to help our clients achieve their goals – every day. How Will you Succeed – Today and Tomorrow? One of the highlights of the conference was hearing the keynote speaker, Shannon Miller, talk about her achievements within the gymnastics world, but also her most significant success –  fighting cancer. She has always set goals – and gone the extra mile to achieve them. When her coach told the team to do 50 push-ups, she did 55 – truly an overachiever! And her goal-oriented attitude kept her going through a devastating cancer diagnosis through to survivorship. I know I’m still feeling inspired by her indomitable spirit – and the wonderful camaraderie from NACCDO-PAMN! We always enjoy sponsoring these conference and look forward to seeing our friends next year!
