Vital Options is best known for The Group Room(R) a weekly syndicated radio call-in cancer talk show which reaches more than half a million radio listeners and countless others via the world wide web and the XM Radio subscription network. Vital Options works collaboratively with other cancer organizations and groups in various cancer communications initiatives and is considered “everyone’s best partner”.

I have the highest respect for this organization which initially began over 20 years ago as the first support group of its kind for young adults with cancer and has since grown to an international organization for all age groups. I had the privilege of volunteering in the early days and met many participants and learned firsthand of their gratitude for Vital Options and the difference it made in their lives as well as witnessing their transformations. VO goes above and beyond the call of duty in every way they can. Their commitment to service, excellence, education, outreach and communication is a precious gift

radically affect patient advocacy, be an incredible teaching tool, reach millions all over the world, set up programs, expand the Group Room radio show. When one sees how far they've come it's not hard to imagine where they could go given the chance.
