Cancer survivors annual celebration of life June 9

May 9, 2012

Celebration, rejoicing and remembering are all part of National Cancer Survivors Day. The annual worldwide event takes place in hundreds of communities throughout the U.S., Canada and other countries. Cancer survivors and their families unite in a symbolic event to show the world that life after a cancer diagnosis can be a reality.

The Cancer Centers of Northern Arizona Healthcare – Flagstaff Campus is sponsoring the annual survivor’s celebration in Flagstaff to honor individuals throughout Northern Arizona who are living with and beyond cancer. The celebration is 6 – 8 p.m., Saturday, June 9  at Lowell Observatory, 1400 West Mars Hill Rd., Flagstaff. The Cancer Center staff looks forward to this day of celebration each year, which allows them to visit with many of the patients and families they have treated and cared for. 

This year, attendees will be treated to a free presentation about and tour of Lowell Observatory, and light catered dinner and entertainment. At night, star gazing will be available for the whole family.  

Cancer “survivors” are those living with a history of cancer ¬– from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life. In the U.S., there are approximately 10.5 million cancer survivors – individuals who prove every day that even with a cancer diagnosis, people can lead active, productive lives. Everyone whose life has been touched by cancer is encouraged to attend.
