Ralph Weaver, Founding President & CEO of East West Connection, a global meeting, events and incentive trip production firm, has been named to the Board of Trustees of Cancer Support Community Central New Jersey (CSCCNJ).

The mission of CSCCNJ is to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community, so that no one faces cancer alone. ® “We are proud to welcome Ralph Weaver to our Board of Trustees,” said Amy J. Sutton, CSCCNJ CEO. “Mr. Weaver embodies the spirit of community and brings the talent, expertise and energy to our table that will further strengthen our cancer support programs and outreach,” she added.  Mr. Weaver has a rich and passionate commitment to cancer care and to the patients and caregivers that live with and through this condition. “It takes a village to make a difference in people’s lives and as the leader of East West Connection, we are committed to touching the lives of people every day,” Weaver said.

Over the past 30 years, Mr. Weaver has developed and contributed to unique and effective programs and initiatives to a variety of organizations focused on cancer, education and equality. His commitment to cancer patients and caregivers was borne of the premature passing of his sister from breast cancer 36 years ago. “Back then, information and support and life-saving therapies were not readily available, and cancer was considered a death sentence. Today, things are different and there is hope for recovery,” Weaver says. “I look forward to helping CSCCNJ build relationships and establish partnerships, particularly in communities of color.”  “The human element is an integral part of everything we do, and I am proud to have a seat at the table of the Cancer Support Community Central New Jersey,” Weaver said.
