May 29 /CSRwire/ - DENVER & MONTPELLIER, France - Genesys Conferencing (Euronext: 3955) (Nasdaq: GNSY), the world's leading conferencing specialist, will be receiving the Beacon Award at CancerCare's Human Services Award Dinner in New York this evening. CancerCare, a national non-profit organization, provides free, professional support to people with cancer and their loved ones through counseling, education, financial assistance and practical help.

Genesys Conferencing has been providing audio conferencing services for CancerCare for the past seven years. The services are used to reach patients in need of critical information.

"We depend on Genesys Conferencing for the delivery of crucial information through our teleconference program," said Diane Blum, Executive Director of CancerCare. "We look forward to honoring Genesys for their assistance in helping CancerCare improve the quality of life of people with cancer and their families."

"As a global conferencing company, we understand the importance of delivering critical information," said Francois Legros, President and CEO of Genesys Conferencing.
