Women and Wellness Signature Breakfast and Luncheon
Tuesday, Feb. 5
VCU Massey Cancer Center will welcome Samantha Harris as keynote speaker at the 24th Annual Women & Wellness Breakfast and Luncheon on Tuesday, Feb. 5, at The Jefferson Hotel.
Harris is known as an Emmy-winning journalist, former host of Dancing with the Stars, health and nutrition advocate, and, now, author. In 2014, when Harris received a stage II invasive breast cancer diagnosis at age 40, she was inspired to begin a quest for answers about how we can all improve our overall health and prevent diseases. The resulting book, "Your Healthiest Healthy: 8 Easy Ways to Take Control, Help Prevent and Fight Cancer, and Live a Longer, Cleaner, Happier Life," translates comprehensive, research-backed knowledge into an easy-to-follow action plan. As a highly motivational speaker, Harris will share her story with Women & Wellness attendees, chronicling her personal journey from cancer diagnosis to optimal health.
The Women & Wellness Breakfast and Luncheon has been the signature event of the Women & Wellness Forum Series for 24 years, raising awareness and funds for women's cancer research conducted at VCU Massey Cancer Center. Guests will have the opportunity to hear Harris' story at either a breakfast or a luncheon. Harris will sign books and autographs for a limited time after each event.
Floral centerpieces available for purchase
Buckingham Greenery is providing beautiful flower arrangements that will serve as centerpieces for both the breakfast and luncheon. Arrangments are available to purchase online. A donation of $100 includes the flowers as well as a note of tribute for you to take home or give to your honoree after the luncheon.
About Women & Wellness:
The Women & Wellness Forum Series was established to educate women on their healthcare options in Richmond and raise funds for VCU Massey Cancer Center. The event grew to become a beloved and much anticipated annual tradition at the Jefferson Hotel, as well as a year-long series of educational and inspirational programming. The impact of funds raised has been widespread, providing critical funding to support cutting-edge research in women's cancers.
