Moffitt Cancer Center Hosted
The Women’s Cancer Symposium in
 West Palm Beach




TAMPA – January 29, 2009 – It was estimated that in 2008 more than 244,000 women would be diagnosed with breast, cervical, uterine or ovarian cancer. More than 63,000 would die. Today, women are more proactive about their own health, and empowered women never get down: they get moving. Nearly 300 of them attended Moffitt Cancer Center’s (in Tampa) Women’s Cancer Symposium at the Kravis Center, Cohen Pavilion on January 29, to learn firsthand from cancer experts about how to prevent and treat women’s reproductive cancers.

Three Moffitt cancer experts led a discussion about medical breakthroughs and state-of-the-art research that is taking place to bring an end to cancer: Dr. Anna Giuliano, the chair of the Department of Epidemiology and Genetics and a program leader in the Risk Assessment, Detection & Intervention program; Johnathan Lancaster, the chair of the Department of Women’s Oncology and Director of the Center for Women’s Oncology; and Susan Minton, an associate member of oncology in the Don & Erika Wallace Comprehensive Breast Program also took questions from the audience.

During the luncheon, Palm Beach Gardens resident Deborah Llewellyn asked guests to join her in Moffitt’s Merit Society. The Society raises funds and awareness to help more
 than 80 female physicians, surgeons and scientists at Moffitt fight cancer. Also, Leah Miles, regional associate director of major gifts at Moffitt invited guests to Tampa to tour Moffitt’s state-of-the-art facility.

Thanks to sponsors, the event was successful raising funds for breast cancer and women’s reproductive cancer research at Moffitt. Sponsors were: Bank of America; Elizabeth Belger, Jenks Commercial Realty; Beverly Bell-Proffett, NurseShark Consulting; John Biondo; Lisa Blum, Estelles Organic; Dr. Melanie Bone and Linda Bradley, USA Leadership Association; Bethesda Hospital Foundation; Jean Brown-Fischer, Cancer Alliance of Help and Hope, Inc.; Lawrence Casey; Allison Cacella, Zeidler Partnership, Inc.; Kathleen Calkins, The Capital Grille; Stanton Collemer, Palm Healthcare Foundation, Inc.; Dianne Davant, Dianne Davant & Associates; Rebecca Dunn; Shay Griese; John Hart; Roberta Jurney, The Quantum House; Margo Kohloff & Michael Dixon; The Lansing Lacy Hutcheon Group at Merrill Lynch; Anne Lewis and
Dr. Jerome Spunberg; Kristi Quarles, LTP Management Group, Inc.; Dennis Stefanacci, Stefanacci & Associates; and Sandra Thomas, Thomas Consulting. Saks Fifth Avenue donated a lovely chance drawing item: a Dior cosmetic bag and wine and cheese party for 10.
