RESOLUTION NO. 980340

 

Declaring April 2, 1998, as Cancer Fatigue Awareness Day.

 

WHEREAS, the 1st Annual Cancer Fatigue Awareness Day will occur on April 2, 1998, and will kick off a national public education campaign, Wake Up to Cancer Fatigue, sponsored by the National Oncology Nursing Society organization; and

 

WHEREAS, the Cancer Institute of Health Midwest and Ortho Biotech pharmaceutical company, in cooperation with many Kansas City area hospitals and cancer organizations are planning awareness and educational activities; and

The speaker will be an area oncologist, who will speak on cancer fatigue and Larry Moore from KMBC-Channel 9 will also speak at this program to share a patients perspective of cancer fatigue; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby declare April 2, 1998, as Cancer Fatigue Awareness Day; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that a copy of this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Council and that copies hereof be presented to the National Oncology Nursing Society organization in appreciation of the dedication and support to the management of cancer treatment- related fatigue experienced by cancer patients.
