Erin Himel's "I Kicked Cancer in the Face" Party




All Dojo families are invited to a party to celebrate Erin Hutchinson-Himmel's cancer free status, and for Sifu Chris and the family to thank their entire support network, for their help throughout Erin's treatment. 


Erin was diagnosed with breast cancer in July 2018, and after a year of chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation has been proclaimed as cancer free! 


We will celebrate on the afternoon of Saturday, September 7, 3:00-6:30 in the Dojo parking lot.  Please feel free to bring your favorite party food or beverage to share.  Live music will be provided by local band North Shore Junction. 


Donations for the local support group Tough Warrior Princesses will also be accepted.  This group was also of great service to Erin and the Himmel family since her diagnosis.  A list of needed items can be found below.
