Carbone Ribbon Room offers cancer patients opportunity to relax and gain support

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- It's a place for relaxation and support during their road to recovery.

Hilton Madison launches a Carbone Ribbon Room to support the UW Carbone Cancer Center and raise money for cancer research. The room features journals, personal stories and artwork as a way to band together and support those struggling with cancer.

The artwork is designed by a local Madison artist, Angelina Paoli, who is a cancer survivor herself.

Each night the room is reserved, the Hilton Madison will donate $25 to UWCCC. Patients being treated at UWCCC will also have the opportunity to stay in the Carbone Ribbon Room, as an effort to provide additional relaxation and support during their road to recovery.

As a result of the 1971 National Cancer Act, the Carbone Cancer Center was established at UW-Madison as one of the first six university-based comprehensive cancer centers of excellence. The UWCCC is involved in groundbreaking clinical trials and research studies to find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.
