Each June Turville Bay hosts our Cancer Survivors and Thrivers Ice Cream Social. It’s a time to celebrate all of you who have been affected by cancer. Whether in remission, treatment or caring for a loved one, this event is an opportunity to relax, have fun and to connect with others in a similar situation. “It’s our shared experiences that make this event so special,” explains Dr. James Richardson, Radiation Oncologist.
Guests appreciate the joyful and inspiring atmosphere at the event. “I love attending the Ice Cream Social every year with my family! It is a happy and upbeat event filled with people appreciating life and the gift of time with each other!” says Susan Smedley Gerber, lung cancer survivor and advocate. The serene setting, overlooking Lake Monona, also adds to the appeal. Everyone is welcome, there’s no cost to attend and parking is free.
At our 7th annual event, we will once again offer 10 flavors of delicious ice cream for free, thanks to our dedicated sponsor, Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream. We will also have musical entertainment provided by another incredible partner, Westside Andy.
In addition to ice cream and entertainment, the event provides an opportunity to interact with healthcare providers and agencies that offer cancer programs, such as Gilda’s Club Madison, to facilitate connections if you’re seeking additional support.
This event embodies the Pure Patient Care that we offer at Turville Bay. Sponsoring it is our way of showing you how much we care about those affected by cancer. We want you to know that you are not alone on this journey.
