Events & Activities

Cancer may slow you down, but it doesn’t have to stop you from living a full life.

Hibernation is not an option this winter! We’ve got something for everyone, from physical activities to help you feel fit to creative pursuits such as choir and art to lectures on topics such as Nutrition and Breast Cancer and Lymphoma 101. You’ll find all this and more in our new seasonal calendar covering the months of January, February and March. Calendar March 2019 (updated March 7)
