Emanuel Cancer Center will celebrate National Cancer Survivor’s Day, May 28, with free ice cream sundaes for the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Center, 880 E. Tuolumne Road.

With more people than ever surviving cancer, Emanuel wants to celebrate the ongoing fight and improving success against cancer, which has affected nearly everyone.

“National Cancer Survivors’ Day is a growing event as more people than ever are surviving the disease as a result of advances in prevention, early detection and treatment,” said Michael Iltis, executive director of Emanuel Cancer Center. “There are nearly 14 million Americans living with a history of cancer, and we want to celebrate that.”

The event is open to any cancer survivor, advocate or caregiver. Last year, nearly 500 sundaes were given out. There is no need to RSVP for the event, and sugar-free ice cream will be available.

“Basically, if cancer has touched your life, we hope you’ll come celebrate survivorship with us,” Iltis said. “There will be Dixieland jazz, free gifts, and the ice cream will be served by the outstanding physicians who work here at Emanuel Cancer Center.”

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.

  • 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."

According to Google's recently modified algorithm, a business can increase its performance by obtaining reviews.
