Cancer Survivors Celebration Breakfast Scottsdale October 2017

Thank you to all of the patients, providers, volunteers, families, and members of the community that came to our Survivor Breakfast Celebration today.  The Scottsdale weather was just right and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky.  This set the mood for a picture perfect morning to eat yummy pancakes, talk with sponsors, and cancer support groups in the community.

By noon, an estimated thousand pancakes were consumed and thousands of hugs were exchanged.   Attendees enjoyed the haircut-a-thon, Tai Chi demonstration, meditation demonstration, head & neck screening, face painting, children crafts, and so much more.

This was a free community event hosted by Ironwood Cancer & Research Centers.  The event had over 250 attendees and 44 vendors.  Stay tuned to ironwoodcrc.com for dates of our 2018 Cancer Survivors Celebration Breakfast Events.
