Our 7th annual Childhood Cancer Symposium took place on Saturday, August 22, 2015 at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel in Center City. It was a free, one-day event designed to be an educational and empowering conference for families of children affected by cancer.
Attendees learned about topics and issues related to their child’s cancer diagnosis, met new families, shared their experiences with one another and discussed different ways to raise awareness for the cause. Our 2015 topics included Cancer’s Effect on Families, Road Map for Survivors, and Medical Post-Traumatic Street. Our inspirational speaker of the day was 3-time cancer survivor and ant-bullying advocate, Kajmere Houchins. To learn more about the program, please click here.
As with all the previous Symposia, a Kids’ Room was provided for younger children to play in while their parents and older siblings attended sessions. Activities included a magic show, therapy dogs, arts & crafts, dance therapy, an animal presentation and much more.
Audio recordings will be posted in about 4 weeks. To listen to audio recordings from previous events, please click here.
