The third annual Patient and Loved Ones Summit was our biggest summit yet!


On November 4-5, 2016, over 50 patients and loved ones traveled to Philadelphia from around the world, from all over the United States, Germany, Australia and Japan! It was the largest Castleman patient and loved one gathering ever hosted by the CDCN! 

The summit enabled patients and loved ones from around the world to connect with one another and learn about their disease, up-to-date research, and ways to join the fight to advance research and treatments. Patients even got to have a Q&A session with three of the top Castleman disease experts. Every patient also had the opportunity to provide blood samples which will be used in ongoing high-impact research studies. Guests were also invited to attend the second annual Quest for a Cure Gala, where the Castleman Warrior of the Year awards were presented!

Thank you to all of the patients and loved ones who traveled to be a part of this historic weekend!

Details about the 2017 Patient and Loved Ones Summit coming soon!
