Shushan Hovsepyan: It all began mid-December – a moment that would define our journey

Shushan Hovsepyan, Pediatric Oncologist and Clinical Research Coordinator at the Yeolyan Hematology and Oncology Center, shared on LinkedIn:

”Reflecting back.

It all began mid-December when we first had a zoom meeting with Oncoheroes Biosciences. It was a moment that would define our journey.
The challenge was clear: Oncoheroes Biosciences urgently needed funding to launch a clinical trial across multiple countries. We had to find a real solution.

That’s when Gevorg Tamamyan came up with the idea of the 24-hour first-ever Global Oncothon. We chose February 15th, as International Childhood Cancer Day!

As a pediatric oncologist from Armenia, the concept of being part of organizing an Oncothon was entirely new to me. But we started working intensively and on February 15th, we brought our idea to life with a 24-hour live-stream OncoThon with over 100 speakers across the word .

I want to thank Gevorg Tamamyan, for always being a driving force behind this extraordinary initiative. Thank you OncoDaily team, Elen Baloyan, and Tatevik Margaryan for their countless hours of hard work.

Thank you Oncoheroes Biosciences, specifically Ricardo Garcia and Cesare Spadoni for your exceptional collaboration. Thank you, Berta Marti Fuster, and Carla Ceprià Nicolás for your invaluable contributions and guidance which truly made a difference.

As I look back, I can’t help but feel proud of what we’ve achieved together.
And this is only the beginning…”
