Events at Fox Chase Cancer Center
At this time of year, all of us at Fox Chase Cancer Center take time to honor those who have been touched by cancer. The leaves of the Tree of Life, hung throughout Fox Chase, symbolize hope and commemorate all that we do as a community of patients, friends, researchers, and other staff to prevail over cancer.
