We like to draw attention to initiatives that align with our core values of education, encouragement, respect and community service.
Which brings us to the upcoming Sue Miller Day of Caring, an event Ms. Miller, a cancer survivor and former fashion model, started in 1981 as a fashion show featuring women who also had survived the disease.
Today, the Day of Caring has grown into a full, daylong symposium, where people touched by breast cancer meet to get the most reliable and up-to-date information and support in the comfort of a welcoming and focused environment. Physicians and healthcare providers volunteer their time to present the latest research findings and the best health information available. Breast cancer survivors share their stories. Companies and nonprofits present helpful products and services. The Joseph/Komen Mobile Mammography Van will be available for mammograms from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the hotel’s parking lot. (Call 303-318-1380 to schedule a screening.)
And yes, there’s still a vibrant lunch and fashion show.
This year’s event will be held 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Sat., May 12, at the Denver Marriott Tech Center, 4900 S. Syracuse Way, in Denver.
