Usually you wouldn’t drop ‘the C-word’ into a nice dinner conversation, but at this Supper Club it will be on everyone’s lips: it’s time to talk about cancer.

Many of us have seen first-hand how devastating cancer can be, but we rarely hear directly from those who deal with diagnoses, treatment and (hopefully) recovery on a daily basis.

Join us for a delicious dinner, meet cancer care providers and specialists, chat with artists who investigate death in their practice, and hear from individuals with personal stories of survival.
