The Colon Cancer Coalition was pleased to be invited to the opening of the new Park Nicollet Frauenshuh Cancer Center in St. Louis Park on August 1st. The Center offers a continuum of care and a variety of services in one place. Meditation areas, educational resources, a chapel and comfortable family rooms are all provided. A healing garden has also been created where patients and families can rest and reenergize.
The Coalition welcomed visitors with our own Get Your Rear in Gear shopping bags, as well as critical information on screening. Adults were asked to test their knowledge with an intriguing Q&A game provided by our colleagues at the University of Minnesota. And we got the kids involved with a “Save a Duck” game; choose a duck from the pond with a spot or “polyp” on them, and save their life.
It was a busy morning and we thank everyone who stopped by to talk with us.
