2020 Cancer Survivors Day
This year we did not host an in-person event due to the pandemic. We were a part, apart. We featured stories from cancer survivors, caregivers, family members, healthcare providers and physicians on our website and Facebook page. Our goal was to ensure we connected with our cancer survivors and community throughout the month of September and honor, remember and share!
Cancer Survivors Day - Honoring, Remembering, & Sharing is an annual dual-location event held in honor of all of the people from Northeastern Pennsylvania who are affected by a cancer diagnosis. Each year members of the Family of Survivors (which include cancer survivors, their families & friends, as well as caregivers and healthcare professionals) attend this meaningful event.
This event features the "Circle of Survivors." This is 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.
