Summa Western Reserve Hospital to host free cancer awareness luncheon


Cuyahoga Falls — Summa Western Reserve Hospital will host its annual Cancer Awareness Luncheon on Jan. 21, a popular event that features a fashion show, free massages, information from respected health organizations and more. The free event is open to the public and takes place from 11:30 a.m.–1 p.m. in the hospital auditorium.

In addition to learning about cancer prevention and treatment from leading health groups, guests will also be treated to a fashion show featuring the clothing of Clothes Mentor and models who are cancer patients receiving treatment at Summa Western Reserve Hospital.

The luncheon will also present the culinary work of Larkin Rogers, Executive Chef of the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park, who will be preparing a healthy comfort food that may prevent cancer.

“Hosting fun events like this gives Summa Western Reserve Hospital an opportunity to educate people with potentially life-saving information about various forms of cancer, while also serving as a hub that connects therapy and prevention organizations to the people in the community,” said Kathy Romito, Community Relations Coordinator, Summa Western Reserve Hospital.

Throughout the auditorium, guests will be able to browse displays from prevention and therapy groups and local businesses, offering valuable information on cancer and leisurely shopping. All guests will receive a complimentary chair massage and surprise gift.

Although the event is free and open to the public, reservations are required and can be made by contacting Kathy Romito at or by calling (330) 971-7408. All reservations need to be made by Jan. 16.
