Gilda's Club Holds Holiday Open House

December 14, 2010

On December 13, 2010, Gilda’s Club Kansas City hosted a Holiday Open House. This was a great opportunity for visitors to see the progress we have made with the Clubhouse, meet our staff, and to learn about healthy eating and cold & flu prevention techniques. Approximately fifty people come by to have a tour and/or sit in on one of the two presentations. A big “Thank You!” to Cancer Treatment Centers of America for sponsoring this event.

The evening’s formal activities began with a cooking demonstration from Lisa Markley, healthy eating specialist from Whole Foods in Overland Park. She made a salad featuring kale, which is one of the healthiest vegetables out there but can be quite difficult to make tasty. With Lisa’s recipe, though, she made a delicious salad that is sure to be incorporated into many of the attendees’ home menus. 

After Lisa’s demonstration, Gilda’s Club CEO, Vanessa Finley, introduced Katherine Anderson of Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA). Katherine is director of naturopathic medicine at CTCA in Tulsa, where she is part of a unique approach to patient care. She and her team of naturopaths work with oncologists to complement patients’ traditional cancer treatments with natural therapies, such as nutritional supplementation, botanical medicine, homeopathy, hydrotherapy and counseling. Katherine provided naturopathic prevention and treatment tips to help us all through the cold & flu season.
