FLINT, Mich. – June 6, 2016 – The nation’s largest independent specialty pharmacy launches a national multimedia campaign to recognize cancer patients and their caregivers.

Diplomat Pharmacy, Inc. (NYSE: DPLO) announced today that it is launching a month-long campaign to celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day and the people touched by the disease. The company also released a video highlighting one of their own patients’ personal stories and her experience with acute myeloid leukemia.

Meet Mallory: Facing Cancer as a Diplomat Patient

“Mallory’s story is a window into the life of a Diplomat patient,” said Diplomat chairman and CEO Phil Hagerman. “Our work is about helping people like Mallory and her family, in the hopes that one day they, too, will celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day.”

Cancer treatments can be complex, and patients need coordinated care to guide them through the process. Diplomat’s oncology program connects the entire health care team, providing expertise and personal support throughout the patient’s therapy.

Sunday, June 5 is National Cancer Survivors Day, an annual celebration of life recognized in hundreds of communities across the nation. On June 7, Diplomat will focus on the disease in its first online “Diplomat Dialogue,” the launch to a series of live conversations planned between patients and health care professionals. Each “Diplomat Dialogue” will explore the triumphs and struggles faced along the patient’s treatment journey.
