Annual Events


Celebrating the Art of Healing

Celebrating the Art of Healing is a day of hope and inspiration for cancer survivors and the families, friends and medical professionals who care for them. St. John Health System and Oklahoma Cancer Specialists and Research Institute are proud sponsors of this event, which takes place every April at St. John Medical Center, 1923 S. Utica Ave. Celebrating the Art of Healing highlights activities that enhance the quality of life for those who face the challenges of cancer. All levels of ability are invited to participate in the breakout sessions, where local professionals help participants access the unique potential of the human spirit.

Mini Relay for Life

St. John and Oklahoma Cancer Specialists are proud to sponsor an annual Mini Relay for Life with the American Cancer Society. The reception is held the morning of the community Relay for Life of Tulsa, which is usually in May. This more intimate version of the community Relay for Life events allows our cancer survivors to come together in a comfortable setting to share their stories with one another and celebrate their journey toward survivorship, whether undergoing treatment or cancer-free.

Community outreach

You can also find St. John and Oklahoma Cancer Specialists at various community activities that promote public education, cancer screenings and prevention, fundraising and celebration of survivorship, such as the Susan G. Komen Tulsa Race for the Cure and Joy in the Cause's annual gala. Our oncology team is always happy to answer questions and provide free educational literature. Follow the website news feeds and social media accounts of both organizations for updates on these and other events.
