Health and Wellness

TOC recognizes that there are a unique set of physical and emotional side effects during and after cancer treatment. Since 2011, TOC has partnered with a variety of health and wellness programs to raise awareness about these issues and aid in survivors’ recovery.

Health and Wellness initiatives have included Kick Out Cancer, Yoga For a Cause, and annual participation in the Lurie Cancer Center’s Annual Cancer Survivors Celebration, Walk and 5k. Past partnerships have included Equinox, Tejas Yoga, The Yoga Center, and Shred 415. If you are interested in hosting a Health and Wellness initiative, please contact jenna@twistoutcancer.org.

 

Kick Out Cancer  

 

Kick Out Cancer is an annual charity soccer match hosted by Minos Vlamakis and Noreen Karadsheh, head coach and head trainer of the Raiders FC.
In May 2011, Noreen was diagnosed with Stage IIB Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. After six months of intense and invasive treatment, Noreen is currently in remission. To honor her journey and celebrate her health, the Raiders FC participate in Kick Out Cancer to raise awareness and funds for Twist Out Cancer and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
