Room of Possibilities Open House

Connor’s Heroes presents a Room of Possibilities on the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit at the VCU Massey Cancer Center. The room was created in order to provide a comforting and healing room for bone marrow transplant (BMT) patients and families. Before Connor’s Heroes created the Room of Possibilities, patients and families were limited to the patient’s room for visiting and passing time. This new room offers a desktop and laptop computer, large screen television and DVD player, Wii game system, board games, books, and arts and crafts supplies.

Connor’s Heroes is excited to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the VCU Massey Cancer Center’s Bone Marrow Transplant Program this year. As an NCI-designated cancer center, the program is nationally recognized for leadership, and its Center of Excellence status has resulted in more than doubling the number of transplants over four years. A National Marrow Donor Program transplant center and a Blue Distinction Center, Massey’s program boasts strong clinical experience and exceptional patient outcomes.

An Open House and 20th Anniversary Celebration will be held on November 20 at the VCU Massey Cancer Center’s Goodwin Research Lab, 401 College Street, Richmond, VA from 2-4 pm, with special remarks at 3:00. Tours of the Room of Possibilities will occur between 2-2:45 and 3:30-4:00. To RSVP for the event, please call (804) 828-1291.
