Celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day
By Sheryl M. Ness, R.N.
National Cancer Survivors Day is an annual, worldwide celebration of life that's held in many communities throughout the United States, Canada and other participating countries. The celebration is traditionally held on the first Sunday in June.
This event is a wonderful day filled with hope, inspiration and friendship as we honor people whose lives have been touched by cancer.
If you're in the Rochester, Minn., area, join us for our "Caribbean (Care-of-being) Getaway" themed celebration. The event will be held 11 a.m-2 p.m. on Sunday, June 2, at the Rochester International Event Center (located near the airport) at 7333 Airport View Dr. SW. Lunch will be provided at 11:30 a.m., followed by a program to honor cancer survivors at 12:15 p.m.
The event is sponsored by the Andre Gauthier Foundation and hosted by Mayo Clinic Cancer Center and the American Cancer Society. Admission is free for cancer survivors and two guests. Additional guests are welcome to attend for a nominal fee of $5 per person. Reservations are required by May 28.
To register, call the Mayo Clinic Cancer Education Program at (507) 538-6001 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
