Frequently Asked Questions

Cancer affects everyone – the young and old, the rich and poor, men, women and children. We have all been touched by cancer, whether personally, or through family, friends, neighbors or colleagues. Cancer does not discriminate, nor should the system in place that aims to fight it.

This is why we created GVCC. Last year was the inaugural conference, where we brought together the collective voices of more than 3,000 patients, survivors, caregivers, non-profits, healthcare providers, hospital systems and biotech/pharma professionals from across the globe. It was the largest ever, global virtual cancer conference.

This year’s conference focuses on empowering you through connection, education and advocacy. Together, we will work towards solving the most pressing problems facing people affected by cancer and expanding the dialogue around how we can create a new paradigm of trust and respect – where everyone’s ideas and experiences matter.
Anyone who has been impacted by cancer and who would like to play a role in transforming the outcomes of people facing cancer and expanding the dialogue around how we can create a new paradigm of trust and respect – where everyone’s ideas and experiences matter. You can be a patient, survivor, caregiver, non-profit community member, healthcare provider, medical or industry professional, policy maker, activist, member of the media, etc.

If you have experiences and ideas to share that could help others facing cancer, we want to engage with and hear from you!!
You will have access to the GVCC Virtual Lobby, Exhibit Hall, Clinical Trial Fair and Session Rooms on Friday, November 13 and Saturday, November 14, 2020 using any standard web browser. Please note, for the best user experience, viewing the conference from your phone is not recommended.
