Connecticut Children’s Medical Center’s Division of Hematology and Oncology will be hosting the 8th Annual Cycle of Life – a special celebration for pediatric cancer survivors and children who are currently undergoing treatment for cancer. The event provides an opportunity for children and families to reconnect with their caregivers and friends.

Cycle of Life will be held at the University of Saint Joseph in West Hartford and will feature a wide variety of interactive games, activities and healthy food choices that help attendees explore the major themes of nutrition and exercise. All of the proceeds raised through sponsorships and the Survivor STAR Lap will benefit the Reach for the Stars Survivorship Program at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.

Our 7th Annual Cycle of Life was a spectacular celebration with 90 survivors, 300 guests and more than 100 volunteers throughout the day. We are proud to announce that through the generosity of our sponsors and our STARS who raised money in honor of their STAR Lap, more than $31,000 was raised to support the REACH for the STARS Survivorship Program at Connecticut Children’s.

REACH for the STARS Survivorship Program

The REACH for the STARS Survivorship Program (REACH: Research, Education, Advocacy, Continued life and Health; STARS: Survivors Tackling All Roadblocks Successfully) at Connecticut Children’s provides guidance and ongoing support to pediatric cancer survivors in an effort to help them improve and maintain a high quality and successful life. The program provides patients with comprehensive summaries of all treatments they received, individualized surveillance for late effects of treatment, access to wellness information, educational outreach events, college scholarships and additional resources on survivorship.

Thank you to all 2015 sponsors and contributors!

We greatly appreciate the generosity of the University of Saint Joseph for the use of their property for our celebration. Thank you for making our celebration possible.
