Cancer Survivor Day Saturday

KSAL StaffJune 16, 2016

A cancer diagnosis is not a death sentence. Major advances in cancer prevention, early detection and treatment have resulted in longer survival. Today, nearly 14.5 million Americans are living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis.

In recognition of this, the Tammy Walker Cancer Center at Salina Regional Health Center is holding a free National Cancer Survivor’s Day event from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, June 18 at the Cancer Center, 511 S. Santa Fe Ave., Salina.

The come-and-go event is open to all area cancer survivors and their families as an opportunity to celebrate milestones, connect with one another and recognize all who have helped along the way.

A person is considered a survivor the day they receive a cancer diagnosis through the remainder of life.

Food and beverages will be provided and there will be chances to win door prizes. Activities include a banner to write on to share life’s celebrations, a blessing of the hands with SRHC chaplain Noni Strand, button machine, fun photo booth, Sno Wizard shaved ice and games for kids. Plus, General George S Patton, the therapy dog, and NICKI, the pink fire truck, will be on hand.
