Duke in Pictures: Spa Day at Duke Cancer Center

The Poetry Fox was writing poetry, and he had lots of inspiration from cancer survivors around him participating in the annual Duke Cancer Center Spa Day Wednesday.

Around 200 patients, survivors and caregivers visited the wellness event sponsored by the Duke Cancer Center Patient Support Program. Vendors and service providers volunteer to pamper invited guests. Spa services included pet therapy makeovers, wig styling, massage therapy, hand massage, gentle yoga, and poetry. Visitors would give the fox a word to inspire his verses, and he created a poem on the spot. The Poetry Fox makes frequent appearances with the Arts & Health at Duke program.
