Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the United States. In Washington alone, an estimated 37,290 new cancer cases was projected last year. This figure goes to show how big a problem cancer is.
It’s a good thing that certain types of cancer can be treated. However, not many people know what to do or how they should react when diagnosed with the dreaded disease.
Book Reading for Cancer Awareness
So if you know someone, a friend or a member of the family, who has been diagnosed with cancer, invite them to join you on February 10, 2014 at the Tri Cities Cancer Center from 12 noon to 1PM for a book reading session entitled “Leading a Charmed Life” – My Journey through Cancer Treatment.
She’s a Survivor
Gayle Bittinger, a local author, will read excerpts from her book, “Leading a Charmed Life”, in which she chronicled her journey through cancer treatment over the course of a year. You will enjoy the book reading, as critics have already called Bittinger’s work inspiring, hopeful, beautiful, uplifting, and honest. Copies of the book will be available for sale, and Gayle will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Tri Cities Cancer Center Foundation.
Admission is free and lunch will be served, but you would have to RSVP by calling (509) 737-3427. For more information on how to reserve a seat, please visit the Tri Cities Cancer Center website.Posted by Colleen D Lane on
