Cancer Wise: Know your Risk


Cancer Wise: Know Your Risk

The beneficiary of our 24th Annual Saints Gala is “Cancer Wise, Know Your Risk,” a program designed to identify those at increased risk for cancer -- through personalized assessment, genetic testing and education.

Helping our community become more “Cancer Wise” includes:

  • Expanded genetic testing, helping identify people with a greater risk for cancer and designing a personalized plan for medical management.
  • Expanded community outreach so that everyone has equal access to testing and follow-up services. Where someone lives or what kind of insurance they have should not be a barrier to receiving the best cancer care possible.
  • Promotion of lifestyle modification strategies for cancer prevention and risk reduction, with focus on healthy habits of nutrition, exercise and smoking cessation.

You can help support the St. Charles Cancer Center program for cancer prevention and early detection by attending and/or sponsoring the Saints Gala, providing an in-kind gift for auction, or making a monetary donation. The Kentucky horse racing themed black-tie event is Saturday, Feb. 4, 2023 at the Riverhouse Convention Center.
