If you or a loved one has or had cancer, survivorship is something to celebrate! Throughout the year, BMC organizes a variety of special events that bring people together. These events are educational, inspirational, stimulating or relaxing, always enjoyable, and most often, fun! 

View this quarter’s brochure to find out what events are coming up. 

These events include, but are not limited to:

True Story Theater

True Story Theater is a nonprofit, improvisational theater company that offers new perspectives and insights on stories from the audience. With humor, drama, song, and dance, the actors "play back" the experiences told to them!  

Survivors Celebration

Every spring BMC hosts its annual Survivors Celebration to honor cancer survivors and their loved ones. Hundreds come together for music, lunch, photos, prizes, and more.

Stowe VT Weekend of Hope

Every first weekend in May, BMC sends a large group of its cancer survivors and their guests to the wonderful "Weekend of Hope" in Stowe, VT. This retreat is a celebration of life and learning for survivors of all cancers, at any stage in their disease, and for those who love them. It offers educational, recreational, and social opportunities in a beautiful mountain resort town.

Games on the Green

A fun opportunity for survivors and their families to come together to take part in old, familiar games like "Giant Steps," "Red Light, Green Light," relay races, and more. All ages are welcome to participate in this good-natured competition that takes place out on the spacious grassy area in front of the Moakley Building.

Art in the Moment

Survivors, family, and friends are invited to express themselves freely and playfully in a range of group activities and make art together. Previous years' projects have included sculptures, collages, mosaics, and much more! No experience necessary.

Thanksgiving Musical Fiesta

An evening of good food, live music, and dancing. Performances are by and for members of the cancer community and their loved ones.
