“Join us to celebrate the members of our community who are surviving cancer,” says Lesley Cunningham, Cancer Center Director at BID-Plymouth. “You will find a celebration filled with joy, camaraderie, hope, compassion, faith and love as we honor cancer survivors for their strength and courage”.
It is a celebration for everyone, whether you’re a cancer survivor, a family member, friend, or medical professional. This event provides an opportunity for all people living with a history of cancer to connect with each other, celebrate milestones, and recognize the healthcare providers, family and friends who have supported them along the way. “A ‘survivor’ is anyone living with a history of cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life,” according to the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation. “Despite the adversities, cancer survivors face each day with courage and dignity and serve as an inspiration to all of us,” says Cunningham.
The 2017 Cancer Survivors Day celebration of life will be held at BID-Plymouth, Obery Street entrance, South Parking Lot, under the tent on Thursday, June 22 from 4-7pm. Jordan Rich, WBZ-AM’s Jordan Rich Show, will serve as the Master of Ceremonies. The event includes good food, raffles and door prizes, musical entertainment by Despite Dwight, featuring Jordan Hospital Club Cancer Center Medical Director Matt Koomey, MD, on drums, and much more.
