Healium Ball

2013 Event - June 8
CT Convention Center

The Healium Ball, first held in 2010, is a celebration by the community of the state-of-the-art services offered at the Eastern Connecticut Cancer Institute, housed at the new John A. DeQuattro Cancer Center. This signature event consists of an elegant cocktail reception followed by a gourmet dinner and dancing. Proceeds from the Ball support the DeQuattro Cancer Fund and the Meg Berté Owen Survivorship Fund. The DeQuattro Cancer Fund benefits cancer patients by providing personal comfort and neighborly care through financial assistance, family support, education, and counseling to ensure continued quality cancer care close to home. Funds will help offset the costs associated with nurse navigators and nutritionists who are committed to working together with the physicians as a dedicated team of professionals, compassionate to the specialized needs of cancer patients. The Survivorship Fund is used to support a survivorship program with activities that reduce the late effects of cancer treatment while improving and encouraging surveillance for recurring cancers and second malignancies.

The 2012 event featured two bands and special entertainment by “Hot on
Broadway.” Alison Morris of FoxCT News was the emcee for the program. Special guests included grateful patient Karen Scott, Governor Dannel Malloy and UConn women's basketball coach Geno Auriemma. 

The Presenting Sponsor, Community CancerCare, contributed $50,000, and we are extremely grateful for their support. We would also like to recognize the following corporate sponsors who made contributions of $10,000 to this event: Medical Oncology and Blood Disorders, LLP, International Aero Engines, Eastern Connecticut Pathology Consultants, PC and Ambulance Service of Manchester. Flower arrangements were generously donated by ShopRite of Manchester and dinner wines were donated by Chris and Carolyn Didden of 2Fly Wines.
