For the fourth year, the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) participated in Kaleidoscope, and Cancer.Net was once again the official clinical cancer information resource of the event. Kaleidoscope is a holiday entertainment variety special that raises awareness of cancer survivorship through collaboration with several advocacy partners.
By pairing awareness and education with the talent and beauty of champion ice skaters and musical performers, Kaleidoscope celebrates cancer survivorship and inspire both those dealing with cancer and those who want to do more to fight it. Kaleidoscope pays tribute to the millions of Americans who are surviving this disease, while serving as a vehicle to educate people about cancer and the unique challenges that face survivors.
Kaleidoscope featured 2010 Olympic champion and gold medalist Evan Lysacek, Olympic silver medalist Nancy Kerrigan, Olympic silver medalist Sasha Cohen, four-time world champion Kurt Browning and Olympic silver medalist Paul Wylie. Special musical performances by country music icon and Grand Ole Opry member Craig Morgan, Grammy Award-winning pop legends Kool & The Gang, breakout American pop-rock duo and American Music Award winner Karmin and country music chart-topping star Jana Kramer added to the celebration. The show aired on CBS on Sunday, November 25, 2012, at 5:00 PM EST, immediately following the NFL game.
