Patient Power will offer cancer patients worldwide the ability to break down barriers and ask direct, first-hand questions of medical experts using new technology at the internationally-renowned medical conference.

As a 2-time blood cancer survivor I understand first hand that breaking news on your illness is critical.

Patient Power is proud to offer a first for this year’s American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting (ASH) - thanks to founder and host Andrew Schorr, patients around the world will be able to ask questions LIVE via text and video about the latest conference findings.

“As a 2-time blood cancer survivor I understand first hand that breaking news on your illness is critical. It can mean the difference between life and death. Patients shouldn’t have to wait for news of potential cures to slowly trickle down to them long after a medical convention, like ASH,” says Schorr, known cancer and patient expert, and founder of online Patient Power.

This is why he is making ASH cancer breakthrough news instant to patients in his eternal mission to empower patients with information. “Patient Power will be the first to establish live interactive 2-way TV online for cancer patients allowing them not just to ask questions but to be seen by all – the cancer expert and the other viewers, live and then on demand because your illness can’t wait,” Schorr added.

Schorr, a medical journalist, will be onsite at ASH, to share the advances in fighting blood cancer announced at the various meetings and presentations via Patient Power. ASH is December 5-8 in Orlando, FL. For the first time in hematology medical history, patients, their advocates and medical professionals throughout the world will be able to ask questions live interactively during ASH via text and video through Schorr’s Patient Power site as well as learn of news in real time on Patient Power’s social media-On Facebook at, on Twitter @PatientPower, or on Instagram @patient_power_

Only Patient Power will be conducting live video interviews with the leading international blood cancer experts attending ASH. Schorr’s mission, and that of the Patient Power website, is to provide frequent updates on new treatments and ground-breaking research, striving to give the most up to date information to those in need. He helps empower patients via knowledge. It’s surprising how little information is available for cancer patients - especially credible, understandable and current information.

Schorr, the ultimate patient advocate and driven expert, delivers more than news - he delivers hope and survival to patients, their advocates, families and friends, physicians and those on the front lines in health care will be awaiting what discoveries and hopeful cures are announced.
