A tradition in Bullitt County returns for the sixth year as the Cancer Awareness Show brings its mix of two shows in one to the Hillview Community Center, Saturday, June 12 2021, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from the day’s activities will benefit patient support, community outreach and research programs of the James Graham Brown Cancer Center at the University of Louisville.
The event is composed of two shows-within-the-show: an arts and crafts show and “Cruizin’ for Cancer,” a car, truck, motorcycle and model car show.
Levi Beverly, Ph.D., a Brown Cancer Center research scientist who examines the mechanisms of tumor initiation, progression and regression after treatment, will be on hand to discuss his work and provide a general overview of the progress made in recent years in successfully beating cancer. Proceeds from the show help fund Beverly’s laboratory along with services provided by the M. Krista Loyd Resource Center and the Kentucky Cancer Program, both initiatives at the Brown Cancer Center.
Admission free but donations to the James Graham Brown Cancer Center are welcomed.
