Ridgefield: Be Informed on World Cancer Day

Be Informed on World Cancer Day: Panel Discussion on Friday, February 7 beginning at 1:00 pm at Founders Hall. This event is open to the public and it's free to attend.

Doctor, patient, counselor, and caregiver – four important perspectives on the same disease: cancer.

This panel discussion, timed to coincide with World Cancer Day, will celebrate the research and progress that has been made in the fight against cancer.

Our panelists are Dr. Robert Cooper, retired Danbury Hospital oncologist with over 40 years of experience and the current Chairman of Ann’s Place; Rudy Spannaus, MA, counselor and Ann’s Place support group facilitator; Dr. Darla Shaw, a three-time cancer patient and professor; and Ben Shaw, Dr. Shaw’s husband and caregiver.

Each panelist will talk about their area of expertise with cancer and address questions from the audience. An open and honest discussion will take place.
