Emanuel Cancer Center to Celebrate Cancer Survivors Day with Ice Cream Sundaes

Cara Hallam

In honor of National Cancer Survivors Day, Emanuel Medical Center will hold an all-day ice cream social for local cancer survivors on Thursday.

“More people than ever before are surviving the disease as a result of advances in prevention, early detection, treatment, and follow-up care,” said Michael Iltis, Executive Director of the Emanuel Cancer Center. “In America alone, there are nearly 14 million living with a history of cancer, and we want to celebrate that.”

While others are celebrating cancer survivors nationwide, Emanuel Cancer Center will hold their own celebration with a drop-in ice cream social for cancer survivors and their friends and family from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“If you or a coworker has survived cancer – even for one day or one month – I invite you to bring a friend and enjoy free ice cream, a gift, and live Dixieland music,” Iltis said. “There’s no need to RSVP, just mark your calendar and come by at your convenience to join this celebration of life.”

Last year’s event drew scores of cancer survivors, all joining to celebrate together while enjoying live music and free ice cream from Cold Stone Creamery.

Emanuel Cancer Center is fully accredited by the American College of Surgeon’s Commission on Cancer in recognition of its quality of treatment and care – a commendation only awarded to about 20 percent of cancer programs in the nation.

The Emanuel Cancer Center is located at 880 E. Tuolumne Rd.

Each of these materials has distinctive properties that set them apart. Since polyester is incredibly light and comfortable to wear, we advise you to utilize it. Athletic clothing frequently uses polyester as a fabric. Shirts for activewear, sweatpants and jogging jackets usually contain polyester blends.

  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
