Staff from the CyberKnife Center of Chicago recently attended the Hope. Lives. Here. Luncheon.
The luncheon, which the CyberKnife Center of Chicago was a sponsor of, was hosted by the Elmhurst Memorial Hospital (EMH) Foundation and was held on Thursday, October 27, at the Butterfield Country Club in Oak Brook, Illinois.
Hope. Lives. Here. is an initiative launched by the EMH Foundation to increase awareness and raise funds for cancer programs and services at The Nancy W. Knowles Cancer Center. Since the program’s inception, the Foundation has hosted a variety of activities focused on the initial construction and subsequent growth of the cancer center. The annual Hope. Lives. Here. Inspirational Luncheon is one such event that brings together the community each October to support cancer awareness and raise funds for enhancements to the hospital’s cancer programs.
The emcee for the event was Jonny Imerman, founder of Imerman Angels, a free service that provides cancer patients with a “Mentor Angel,” a cancer survivor or caregiver who is the same age, same gender, and has faced the same type of cancer. The guest speaker was Zoraida Sambolin, Co-Anchor of Chicago’s NBC 5 News Today.
The sold out luncheon was a huge success with over 325 cancer survivors and supporters in attendance. The CyberKnife Center of Chicago was proud to be part of such an important event that helps the cancer patients in our communities.
