The Warrior Walkis a fun-filled event for cancer survivors to connect with one another and share in celebration with their friends, family and caregivers.
Today there are 12 million cancer survivors in the United States and growing every day. These survivors deserve to have the fullest, healthiest possible life after their cancer care. The effects of cancer treatment can be far-reaching, and dependent upon many factors: the type and progression of the disease, length of treatment, and the ever-evolving drugs and therapies used. Health care decisions for cancer survivors can be incredibly complex. Now, thanks to the generosity of Richard DiMarzo, the Wilmot Cancer Center is able to launch a clinical program in survivorship, which will bring the world’s best research on cancer survivorship into the hands of patients and primary care physicians.Please join us on as we help cancer survivors in our community, and throughout the region, have a better and healthier future. All funds raised at Warrior Walk will contribute to:
- Development of care plans for specific cancers and treatments that are informed by cutting-edge research
- Funding educational visits for cancer survivors to review their care plans and treatment summaries (Most insurance providers do not cover these visits
- Educational initiatives in the region to help primary care providers gain information about how to best care for cancer survivors
