CancerForward: The Foundation for Cancer Survivors
First Annual Luncheon

 

#I Can Go Forward

 

#ICanGoForward:
The Spirit That Inspires

a luncheon celebrating cancer survivorship and presenting
 A conversation with shannon miller and Dee Dee Ricks
 

Houston, Texas – CancerForward: The Foundation For Cancer Survivors (CancerForward) is pleased to present their first annual luncheon, #ICanGoForward: The Spirit That Inspires, Celebrating Cancer SurvivorshipArvia and Jason Few, Brenda Love and Ed Jones, and Jane and Ed Parks serve as chairs of this celebratory luncheon on Tuesday, February 28, 2012 at the Hilton-Americas Hotel.  Shara Fryer will serve as the honorary chair of this special day.  These dynamic women Arvia, Brenda, Jane and Shara are not only chairing this fabulous luncheon but they are all cancer survivors!

The luncheon will begin with at 11:30am with a reception followed by lunch and a conversation moderated by Lisa Malosky with US Olympic gymnast Shannon Miller and HBO television personality Dee Dee Ricks, both cancer survivors.  Heralded as next generation leaders in cancer awareness, Ricks and Miller will share their experiences and discuss trending practices in cancer survivorship.

All proceeds from this luncheon benefit CancerForward, a free and unique web-based networking and educational resource for cancer survivors of all ages and types of cancer www.Cancerforward.org    Individual Tickets begin at $250 and tables of 10 begin at $2,500, for more information on the luncheon or to purchase tickets or a table, please contact Lee Honeycutt at 713/840-0988 ext. 04 or email LLH@cancerforward.org.


Shannon Miller
is the most decorated American gymnast, male or female, in history and the only female athlete to be inducted into the US Olympics Hall of Fame – twice!  At the 1996 Olympic Games, she led the “Magnificent Seven” to the US Women’s first ever Team Gold and for the first time for any American gymnast, she captured gold on the balance beam.

After retiring from Olympic competition, Shannon received an undergraduate degree and a law degree from Boston College. She moved from Olympic athlete to television and radio analyst, commentator and host.  Her company, Shannon Miller Lifestyle: Health and Fitness for Women, has published a series of fitness books and cookbooks as well as fitness DVDs. She travels the country as a highly sought-after motivational speaker and advocate for women’s health and fitness.   In January of 2011, Shannon was diagnosed with a rare malignant germ cell tumor, a form of ovarian cancer.  Now cancer free, Shannon stands as a strong activist for making fitness and diet a priority in cancer rehabilitation and survivorship.  In early 2012, she will launch her own television show on the new Health and Wellness Channel, the only place on television for 24-hour health and wellness programming.

Dee Dee Ricks
was diagnosed with breast cancer in April 2007, an event that turned the 39-year-old Manhattan hedge fund consultant and philanthropist into a champion for the uninsured and underinsured.  Her initial activism for healthcare provisioning and survivorship planning for the poor is at the center of the HBO documentary, “The Education of Dee Dee Ricks,” which premiered in October, 2011.

A lead financial supporter of The Ralph Lauren Cancer Center in Harlem, Ricks sits on the board of the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute, where she funded a program to provide cancer prevention to women in rural Arkansas.  She chairs the board of The Harold P. Freeman Patient Navigation Institute, considered the gold standard training facility for patient navigation, a concept pioneered by oncologist Harold P. Freeman, MD in 1990 for the purpose of eliminating barriers to timely cancer screening, diagnosis, treatment, survivorship care and end-of-life-care.  Today, on the threshold of publishing her first book, Ricks travels the globe extending the reach of patient navigation as a strategy to reduce mortality in cancer and other chronic diseases.

CancerForward: The Foundation For Cancer Survivors
( www.cancerforward.org  )
is a free and unique web-based networking and educational resource for cancer survivors of all ages and all types of cancers. By design, CancerForward embraces the now conventional definition of “survivors” thus serving those living with, through and beyond cancer diagnosis, along with family members, friends, and caregivers. The Survivor Network on CancerForward, funded by the Dan L. Duncan Family, is an online platform that provides survivors and caregivers virtual support groups in which to share experiential information about disease-specific issues as well as health, wellness and practical living issues. The Foundation’s nonprofit mission is to connect, educate and share information among cancer survivors, empowering them to move forward with their lives.
