Each year, New York Cancer & Blood Specialists hosts its annual “Tree of Hope” tree lighting ceremony which has grown significantly since its inception. This year's event took place at our new state of the art cancer care center located at 49 Route 347, Port Jefferson Station on December 7th.
The Tree of Hope symbolizes the patients, their families, and the team of doctors, nurses, and staffs hope for a world that is cancer-free. Patients endure a great deal as they go through treatment and NYCBS aspire to ease the burden that accompanies and lift their spirits, especially during the holidays.
Festivities were fun-filled for both children and adults alike. Shuttle arrangements were made for transportation to and from the event that included an 80’ tube slide and a parking lot disguised ice skating rink. Holiday music was sponsored by WALK FM while patients and their loved ones warmed their hearts with delicious desserts and hot cocoa provided by Elegant Eating.
The New York Cancer Foundation had a table and sold baked goods and other items. All proceeds benefited the foundation. Additional tables were set up for holiday crafting and the photos were endless with a photo booth set up, Santa, and even his sleigh of live reindeer.
“Tree of Hope” illuminated the night adorned with messages of hope for a happy and healthy future.
