Hello Conquerors!

TCC rang in the new year with our annual Get Fit Bowling Birthday Bash! Members and their families joined us for some friendly competition, dinner, and birthday celebrations. Linda Rupal took the prize (if only there had been one) for her 207 game! We’ll be back in 2019 so you all have a whole year to practice.

The really big excitement for January was our very own Advisory Board member, Chef Ken Harvey, making his debut on the Food Network's Chopped! Loews Ventana Canyon hosted a viewing party on their big screen where Chef had kindly reserved prime seating for TCC and the games began. The competition was fast and furious with Chef advancing handily through the first two rounds. When he opened his last box for the final round we all cheered…Nopale cactus leaves!! The other chef didn’t have a clue, but he got right to work and clinched the title. We are proud of you Chef Ken – Congrats!

Our many programs would not be possible without the generous support of our community leaders. We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Dr. Christine Mansfield of Arizona Reproductive Institute for supporting our High Tea Event. Dr. Mansfield is passionate about educating cancer patients on their options to preserve their future fertility before they begin cancer treatment. Thank you Dr. Mansfield!
