1340 Boylston St
On Saturday, October 21 10 a.m.–1 p.m., join Fenway’s Women’s Health Team for the 19th Annual Audre Lorde Cancer Awareness Brunch, a celebration of women of color and their supporters whose lives have been affected by cancer. Started in 1999, the brunch is named in memory of Audre Lorde, a self-described “black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet” who battled cancer for 14 years.
The theme for this year’s event is “Sisters, Survivors, Warriors” to encourage cancer survivors to unite in sisterhood, learn about survival through health education, and rise as warriors. The event will feature a musical performance by Zili Misik, an interactive dance session by Uprising Dance Theater, spoken word performances, health education sessions, and a raffle.
At the Brunch, the community will also have access to resource tables from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Codman Square Health Center, Cancer Care Center at Boston Medical Center, and Family Van. RSVP at AudreLordeBrunch.eventbrite.com.
