The American Association for Cancer Research released the AACR Cancer Progress Report 2012 at a National Press Club event on Wednesday, Sept. 12. The report, which was published simultaneously in Clinical Cancer Research, a journal of the AACR, celebrates the many ways that scientists have made research count for cancer patients and highlights the great need for continued support for cancer research.

Joyce and Mike talk with Shaundra Hall, who attended yesterday's press conference, about the implications for patients and how we can help the researchers to make even better progress.

Shaundra Hall is employed as the Executive Assistant to the President and CEO for Cancer Treatment Centers of America at Western Regional Medical Center, and is also a volunteer with the National Cervical Cancer Coalition/International HPV Cancer Coalition (NCCC) and the American Social Health Association (ASHA).

As the Regional Director of the Southwest U.S. for NCCC/ASHA, which includes Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma, she supports, educates and promotes cervical cancer prevention & HPV cancer prevention and awareness. She travels the country learning about the latest scientific developments regarding HPV related diseases and in turn, educates local communities through speeches, informal community forums and corporate wellness presentations.
