Upstate marks National Cancer Survivors Day
SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Nearly 500 cancer survivors and their families will celebrate life at the National Cancer Survivors Day celebration Sunday, June 6, from noon to 3:30 p.m. at the Holiday Inn, 441 Electronics Parkway, Liverpool, N.Y.
The event, sponsored by Upstate University Hospital, will be attended by survivors—teenagers to octogenarians—from all across Central New York.
“Each year, we move a step closer to winning the war on cancer thanks in part to extensive medical research that finds new treatments,” said Tina Evans, of the Regional Oncology Center at Upstate Medical University, the event’s sponsor. “This event is an opportunity to gather together and share survival stories and celebrate the work that is being done to help us win the fight against cancer.”
National Cancer Survivors Day is an annual, nationwide celebration that is held in over 700 communities. Events are held around the nation to honor the more than 9 million Americans who are surviving cancer, to spread the message that life after a cancer diagnosis can be a reality.
