When the Tough Enough to Wear Pink rodeo sponsored by Wrangler, R&A Enterprises and the Glenwood Springs Post Independent, and hosted by the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo takes place at the Gus Darien arena in Carbondale on Thursday, July 19th at 7:30pm, it will not only honor all breast cancer survivors here, but also celebrate the integrative therapies available to all cancer patients at Valley View Hospital. Ten percent of the gate proceeds from this event will support integrative therapies, an on-site salon & boutique, support & survivorship programs, and an emergency assistance fund at the new Calaway + Young Cancer Center at Valley View Hospital. General admission is $10 per person or $30 per carload (4-6 passengers). Pink attire is definitely encouraged, and breast cancer survivors will be admitted free of charge starting at 6pm by calling: 970-384-6623 to RSVP. “Science and medicine can cure cancer. Radiation, chemotherapy and surgery can treat the disease. But, healing a person from head to toe takes more,” said Stacey Gavrell, executive director of the Valley View Hospital Foundation, the fundraising arm of the hospital. “It requires humanized treatment, personalized care and demystification of the journey that is cancer. It requires a comprehensive approach that not only treats the cancer, but also addresses the mind and spirit.” The new Calaway + Young Cancer Center at Valley View Hospital will bring together a superb medical team, the best of scientific medicine as well as resources and services to heal the whole person. Integrated therapies, support & survivorship programs, an on-site boutique & salon, and an emergency assistance fund will enable Valley View to treat the whole person, not just the disease, and to help cancer patients with their journeys through treatment and into survivorship. Integrated Therapies In addition to radiation, surgery and chemotherapy, certified therapists will provide massage, acupuncture, yoga, therapeutic/healing touch, craniosacral therapy and aromatherapy to promote recovery. These therapies can help a patient better manage the side effects of cancer treatment. They can also help patients cope with the stress and anxiety of a cancer diagnosis. These services complement medical treatments to promote whole body healing. On-site Boutique & Salon The boutique and salon will offer specialized products and resources to help patients create a sense of normalcy while they journey through treatment.
