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.  This will be the 25th year of this program.
