Monthly Cancer Research Meeting

What Cancer Patients Want Researchers to Know
Wednesday, September 9, from 5:15-6:45pm, Cornell Vet School Hagan Room

Every September, we turn the tables at our monthly research meeting. Usually, we learn about cancer research from the scientists. This month, the scientists will learn from people who have been through cancer. Everyone is welcome!

These monthly seminars present up-to-date cancer research in lay language. Researchers, students, clients, and members of the public are welcome.

Help Needed from our Friends in Fall Creek

We would like to put up yards signs along the route of Porch Fest (9/27/15) promoting our event but we need YOUR yard to make it happen!

Please email Fran@crcfl.net with your address if you would be willing to have a yard sign placed in front of your house on Friday 9/25 and removed on Mon. 9/28.

OR, even better, if you would be willing to let it stay there until Monday October 26!!
We'll do all the dropping off and picking up.

Thank you for being a part of our amazing community!

Got a place to hang a Walkathon poster, perhaps in your office,
or favorite establishment?  Please help us out!
