Don't miss our spectacular silent auction, featuring our signature teapot collection and other unique and fabulous items!
We are raffling off TWO wonderful items- a beautiful painting by Frank Ybarra valued at $3,500 and the gemstone and lodalite (quartz) pendant on silk cord by jewelry designer Joseph Sikorski,
valued at $750.
The painting is on display at Banner Desert's cafeteria; the pendant is on display in the oncology boutique or cafeteria at lunch time.
• Both artists are cancer survivors treated in Banner hospitals, and both have donated these items to our program. Joseph attends the Banner Desert Patient and Caregiver support group.
• Frank is a noted Arizona artist, exhibits in galleries in Scottsdale and Tucson, and was commissioned to paint Justice Sandra Day O’Connor’s painting for the Centennial. He was the sole designated artist for the State of Arizona 2012 Centennial.
• Frank mentors our patients at Day of Art, and has a copy of his cancer story painting hanging outside the American Cancer Society office on the first floor of Banner Desert.
Tickets are $20 or three for $50; we take cash, check or charge

Banner Desert offers free chest-compression-only CPR class
Banner Desert Medical Center is offering a free chest-compression-only CPR class from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on the dates below in the hospital's Aspen A room, 1400 S. Dobson Road.
- March 5
- April 2
- May 7
- Sept. 3
- Oct. 1
- Nov. 5
Classes will also be available from 9 to 10:30 a.m. June 1, July 6, and Aug. 3.
For many people, chest-compression-only CPR may be easier to learn and remember than traditional CPR, which alternates between chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
People who suffer cardiac arrest - in which the heart stops beating - are less likely to die in subsequent years when bystanders performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation using only chest compressions, according to a recent study published in the medical journal Circulation.
