Cancer patients and survivors, as well as their friends and family are welcome to join us for an outdoor, in-person celebration for National Cancer Survivor’s Day. The cancer center’s Supportive Oncology and Survivorship program organizes the event to honor everyone impacted by cancer.
On Friday June 3, 2022, there will be food and refreshments for cancer survivors and caregivers, cancer support information booths, along with live music from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
It all takes place in the courtyard between the north and south buildings of the cancer center. Please park in the visitor lot and follow the signs to the cancer center. Look for the large balloon display between the two buildings.
Veronica Neri, with the supportive oncology team, said, “Whether you are newly diagnosed, in treatment, recovery or in remission, you are a cancer survivor, and we invite you to celebrate with us.”
The nonprofit National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation held its first event in 1988. The annual event is a “celebration of life,” where survivors gather with cancer center doctors, nurses and other staff as well as friends and family to show that life after a cancer diagnosis can be full and fun.
