LivingWell Cancer Resource Center offers afternoon of fun
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.
â€œThis is a dress-up party for children dealing with cancer themselves or in their families,â€ said Susan Mielke, LivingWell special events coordinator. â€œAll of our participants are encouraged to bring children, grandchildren and friends.â€
Attendees may dress up, in fantasy clothes or any outfits that make them feel like royalty to match the castle theme.
â€œWe will have a magic show, a clown doing balloon sculpture, art projects, pet therapy dogs, face painting, cookie â€˜castleâ€™ decorating, pizza, castle cake and ice cream and more,â€ Susan said. â€œThis wonderful â€˜dress-upâ€™ 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.â€
