  1. Congratulations to all the LIVESTRONG Team including your Leaders, volunteers and advocates around the World. In 2009 your Global Movement raised the profile of cancer as a chronic disease demanding a call to action by everyone everywhere. In 2010 the LIVESTRONG message continues to resonate in these communities, including here in South Australia. In 2011 we look forward to building upon this great work to and striving to achieve our common goal -an end to cancer! Thank You LIVESTRONG.
