Cancer Survivors Day- Honoring, Remembering, Sharing

Cancer Survivors Day-Honoring, Remembering, Sharing is an annual  dual-location event held in honor of all of the people from northeast Pennsylvania who are affected by a cancer diagnosis.  Each year members of the Family of Survivors – which include cancer survivors, their families and friends, as well as caregivers and healthcare professionals – attend this meaningful event.

This event features the “Circle of Survivors,” an activity during which every person in attendance has the opportunity to say a few words about their experience with cancer.  Conversation and light refreshments provide an additional opportunity for connection and support.  2017 marked 25 years of this program.

Saturday, September 8, 2018- McDade Park- 10AM to 12PM
Saturday, September 22, 2018- Kirby Park- 10AM to 12PM

*Please dress for the weather as both events will take place outdoors.
