The Survivor Breakfast Celebration in Glendale was a Success!

Thank you to all of the patients, providers, families, and members of the community that came to our Survivor Breakfast Celebration today.  We had 335 people attend our event today to celebrate Survivors of Cancer!  This was a perfect morning to eat tasty 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.   We had a Tai Chi demonstration, meditation demonstration, head & neck screening, face painting, children crafts, a breakfast from Picnic Specialties, and 47 vendors. This was a free community event hosted by Ironwood Cancer & Research Centers.  Stay tuned to http://ironwoodcrc.com/patient-resour… for our next event in Scottsdale on October 13th!  Lastly, we wanted to send a heartfelt note to each and every one of our volunteers that setup, directed traffic, assisted vendor’s to their tables, took photos, and cleaning up after the event on a Saturday.


“Survivors Breakfast Celebration” Continues to Unite and Inspire Glendale Community

On an early spring Saturday morning in Glendale, before the sun brightens the day, a team of dedicated and tireless volunteers are buzzing with energy, setting up tables, chairs and pop-tents, getting ready for the morning’s festivities. Today is Ironwood Cancer & Research Centers “Survivor Breakfast Celebration.”  Ironwood has invited hundreds of guests to their Glendale location for education, entertainment and a pancake breakfast.  Sandra, an Ironwood employee says, “It’s just as much fun as it is a passion project for us.”

The purpose of the breakfast is to celebrate individuals and families that have been touched by cancer and is open to the entire community.  One of the oncologists with Ironwood says, “Our patients and their families are extraordinary people.  This event helps us give back to them in a meaningful way.”

This event is uplifting, educational and inspiring – not to mention free.  Ironwood oncology specialists provide free head and neck screenings, community hairstylists provide free haircuts, visitors can participate in a Tai Chi demonstration, there is a meditation workshop, as well as various cancer related educational booths, face painting and family friendly crafts. Participating vendors provide visitors valuable information and support services for cancer patients, their families, and the general community and many are cancer survivors themselves.  Ann, from Mindful Skin Spa who cares for the skin of cancer patients, says, “This is a wonderful celebration for patients, their family, and friends.  I’ve been coming for four years and it keeps getting better.”

Everybody is helping everybody which is a pleasure to see.  That alone would be enough for me, but the yummy breakfast and activity lineup bring this event into a league of its own.” Kelly Huey, a social worker at Ironwood, says, “My goal is to make every one of our guests feel like this is their day.  We want them to know that we at Ironwood are honored to serve and care for them. Ironwood offers support groups, classes, and integrative services that are free and available not only for our patients but the entire community.  The best part of the breakfast for me is seeing everyone enjoying the morning and forgetting about their problems and having some fun!”  By the end of the day an estimated one-thousand pancakes will be consumed, a few tears will shed and an innumerable amount of smiles and hugs will be shared.  Come learn and celebrate with our patients, volunteers, staff, and the community.

The Survivor Breakfast Celebration will take place at the Ironwood Cancer & Research Centers located at 5810 W. Beverly Ln., in Glendale near 59th Ave. and Bell, from 8-11am, Saturday, May 5, 2018.
