They also can attend classes pertinent to survivorship, such as Financial Fiesta, Tai Chi Jubilee, Stretch Party, Scent Soirée, Nutrition Craze and Comfort & Caring, while local bakeries, including Three Brothers Bakery, Ooh La La-Katy, Memorial Bakery, The Westin Houston, and Memorial Hermann Food and Nutrition Services battle it out to create the best “birthday” cupcake recognizing survivors’ life after cancer.
