Reach for the Stars, The Queen's Celebration

Saturday, April 15, 2017
Silverado Resort and Spa

Nearly 400 guests attended Queen of the Valley Foundation’s 24th annual luncheon and fashion show on April 15 at the Silverado Resort and Spa, raising nearly $260,000 for the Queen’s Cancer Wellness Program. Cancer survivors of all ages – from 3 to 81 – walked the fashion runway in a celebration of their successful fight against the disease. Mayor Jill Techel, a cancer survivor herself, was honored for her considerable contributions to the health of our community, making it a better place to live and work.

A moving celebration of strength and survivorship, Reach for the Stars, The Queen's Celebration highlights Queen of the Valley’s dedication to assisting individuals with cancer. All event proceeds benefit the Queen’s Cancer Wellness Program and make it possible for patients to participate free of charge. With a physician referral, the 12-week wellness program is open to all cancer patients in the community, regardless of where they are being treated or if they have insurance. With support from these funds, the program has aided over 786 cancer survivors since its inception.

The physical and emotional support of the Cancer Wellness Program is highly valued by cancer patients and their families. The program includes everything from supervised progressive exercise with a personal trainer, to nutrition counseling, stress management, acupuncture, healing touch—whatever our participants need to make their experience of undergoing treatment the best it can be under the circumstances.
