Living healthy – it’s what we all strive for – eat right, exercise, manage stress, laugh along the way. It often feels like we’re on information overload. Join us for an informational health event to help you breakdown and sort out cancer information.
Do you ever wonder – what do your cells do? They’re the basic unit of life – magnificent and mysterious. Cells divide – it’s what they’re supposed to do. They’re born, do their job, and then die knowing other cells will take their place. Cancer cells, on the other hand, are selfish, destroy normal cells and grow out of control. When cancer strikes, it’s a story of our cells gone wild.
Our panel of experts will present current information on prevention, education, diagnostics, cancer care treatment and support.
