The Tumor Radiators: Cancer Awareness in Action
Radiation Therapy students presented Cancer Awareness Day on Tuesday, October 2, 2012 as part of the service learning requirement for the Principles and Practices of Radiation Therapy Course. Students presented information on three types of cancer: Skin Cancer, Lung Cancer and Breast Cancer. They were divided into groups and created information boards, handouts, games, videos and power points regarding these types of cancers.

Even though the rain came, it did not dampen the attitude and excitement of the day. The radiation therapy students engaged the general population on campus informing them about early detection, tests and imaging that can be done to prevent or catch the disease early. Students had games regarding lung cancer, skin cancer and even had a door prize given out by the breast cancer group. The money donated for the door prize will be donated to the Making Strides walk in which the students will participate on Saturday, October 20, 212. The team, Tumor Radiators, will walk and raise as much money as they can for the fight against cancer!

Students, faculty and staff showed interest and got caught up in the enthusiasm displayed by the radiation therapy students.
