June: Celebrating Cancer Survivors
An estimated 13 million cancer survivors live in the U.S. today. They are your neighbors. They are your teachers. They are your parents. They are your children. They are your friends. They could even be you.
We've all been touched by cancer at one point in our lives, directly or indirectly. Whether you've been cancer-free for years or your loved one is now ending treatment, it's time to celebrate our victories against cancer. Join ProMedica Cancer Institute in honoring the brave survivors who have made an impact in your life this June—Cancer Survivorship Month.
Survivor Celebrations at ProMedica Cancer Institute
Connect with area survivors at any of ProMedica Cancer Institute's Survivor Celebration events in June. These celebrations not only highlight the success stories and survivorship program at PCI, but also welcome cancer survivors throughout the community to share their stories. Additionally, Survivor Celebrations provide opportunities for patients, staff and supporters to interact outside of the clinical setting.
