On Thursday November 20th at 11 a.m. the ribbon cutting ceremony was held for the R.A. Bloch Cancer Survivor Plaza recently completed in the East end of Julia Davis Park. This marks the end of a very long, taxing process and the beginning of a well deserved life-long celebration recognizing Cancer Survivors for their heroic battles against the bully that is cancer. This project started more than five years ago when local cancer survivor Larry Fisher brought the concept of building a Cancer Survivor Plaza to Boise Parks and Recreation. The R.A. Bloch Cancer Foundation has funded 24 Cancer Survivor Parks throughout the U.S. and Canada. The plaza located in the East end of Julia Davis Park in Boise, Idaho is the Bloch Foundation’s 25th and quite possibly final plaza.
Trevor’s Trek is thrilled to bring the Children’s Cancer Pavilion to the East end of Julia Davis Park to further enhance the beauty that the R.A. Bloch Cancer Foundation has already bestowed on a true Idaho landmark! The Children’s Cancer Pavilion is the first of its kind in the United States designated to honor pediatric cancer patients and survivors. We will be completed with the Children’s Cancer Pavilion in the spring of 2015 and look forward to the ribbon cutting! It was so great to see so many friends and supporters at the R.A. Bloch Cancer Survivor Plaza Ribbon Cutting and we look forward to seeing you in the spring!
