After years of anticipation, we are excited to share that the Inova Schar Cancer Institute, a department of Inova Fairfax Hospital is opening their doors to patient care on May 13th. They have been a partner with us in the fight against prostate cancer for the last few years and Inova Schar Cancer Institute has returned as one of our Presenting Sponsors for the ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk – Capital Area!
The Inova Schar Cancer Institute, a department of Inova Fairfax Hospital, is a state-of-the-art cancer care destination – the first in the DC Metro area to offer multi-disciplinary, patient-centric cancer care under one roof. 1,000+ doctors, researchers, nurses, cancer specialists, and emotional support experts are at the ready to deliver the nation’s highest standard of compassionate, collaborative and holistic cancer care, customized to the needs of each patient from diagnosis to survivorship.
Last week, I attended their magnificent opening ceremony and dedication which had so many wonderful and emotional highlights with stories from cancer survivors.
The ceremonial opening of the front doors was led by J. Stephen Jones, President and CEO of Inova who was joined by Inova Schar Cancer Institute patients, survivors, and their families. It was truly an emotional moment for everyone in attendance to see the amazing care patients received, and knowing that treatment will be shared with so many more in the future.
Award-Winning Journalist and cancer survivor Cokie Roberts put it best, “The only day that will be better [than today], is the day the doors close because cancer will be gone”.
Sign up and join us on June 15th to congratulate our Inova Partners in person: www.zeroprostatecancerrun.org/dc
