More than 250 attendees gathered for the Angels on Earth Luncheon at Cherokee Town Club to benefit the Thomas F. Chapman Family Cancer Wellness program at Piedmont Atlanta Hospital. The annual event, which raised more than $50,000, provides education on the benefits of an integrated approach to cancer treatment and recovery. This year’s event focused on “The Power to Heal” and featured Steven Satterfield, executive chef and co-owner of Miller Union; Dr. Eric Mininberg, president and CEO of the Piedmont Cancer Institute; and Dennis Buttimer of the Atlanta Center for Mindfulness and Well-Being, on a panel to discuss ways to use food, mindfulness and medical advances to better live a healthy lifestyle. The event’s featured artist was astrophotographer Paul Tankersley, who captures images of the sky. Founded by John and Jillian Cooke in 2006, the Cancer Wellness Center works to support a mission of healing and wellness through professionally led programs available to anyone in our community who is affected by cancer.[nggallery id=21]
