October 6, 2016 | Dagny Stuart
Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center’s 2016 Cancer Survivorship Celebration will be held Sunday, Nov. 6, from 2 to 4 p.m. The annual event is being hosted in partnership with Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.
This year’s celebration, “HOPE,” to be held at OZ Arts Nashville, 6172 Cockrill Bend Circle, will feature music, art and activities for family members of all ages.
Cano Ozgener, artist, cancer survivor and founder of OZ Arts Nashville, will share his story about how art has impacted his life and the legacy of the arts facility he founded, which supports the creation, development and presentation of significant performing and visual art works.
The Cancer Survivorship Celebration is free and open to all cancer survivors no matter where they received their care. Parking is free and light refreshments will be served.
“We are looking forward to holding our celebration in this lovely center that supports artists and their creative efforts,” said Allison Schaffer, LCSW, manager of Patient and Family-Centered Care at VICC. “There is a clear benefit for patients who express their feelings through artistic endeavors and this year’s activities are designed to highlight the intersection of expressive arts and cancer survivorship.”
