LivingWell Cancer Resource Center offers afternoon of fun

By on June 4, 2009

The LivingWell Cancer Resource Center, a provider of non-medical support at no cost for people living with cancer, will host an afternoon of fun and fantasy on Saturday, June 13, from noon to 3 p.m. for children who have been diagnosed with cancer, or for those who have a family member with cancer.

This event is free, but registration is required by Wednesday, June 10. Call (630) 262-1111 to register.

“This is a dress-up party for children dealing with cancer themselves or in their families,” said Susan Mielke, LivingWell special events coordinator. “All of our participants are encouraged to bring children, grandchildren and friends.”

Attendees may dress up, in fantasy clothes or any outfits that make them feel like royalty to match the castle theme.

“We will have a magic show, a clown doing balloon sculpture, art projects, pet therapy dogs, face painting, cookie ‘castle’ decorating, pizza, castle cake and ice cream and more,” Susan said. “This wonderful ‘dress-up’ party for our little ones came from Shannon Fairlamb, a cancer survivor and a LivingWell friend. We are so excited to offer this magical afternoon.”

LivingWell is located at 1803 W. State St., in Geneva, and online at www.LivingWellCRC.org. LivingWell is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday and can be contacted at (630) 262-1111.
