Methodist Sugar Land Hospital will join over 12 million American cancer survivors in observing the 25th annual National Cancer Survivor’s Day this year. Hundreds of communities worldwide will host events on this day to celebrate life and demonstrate that there is hope. The contributions of the families, friends and health care providers who support cancer survivors will also be recognized.
The National Cancer Survivor’s Day Foundation (NCSD) administrator is encouraging everyone to participate in their community’s event. “Come join in the fun and see for yourself that life can go on, and is sometimes even enhanced by a cancer diagnosis,” says Foundation spokesperson, Paula Chadwell. “National Cancer Survivor’s Day is a great opportunity for cancer survivors, caregivers, friends and family to come together and affirm the possibility of quality of life after a diagnosis of cancer,” added Clive Shkedy, M.D., radiation oncologist and Medical Director of Methodist Sugar Land Hospital’s Cancer Center.
Methodist Sugar Land Cancer Center welcomes all local cancer survivors, caregivers, community leaders, Methodist Sugar Land Hospital physicians and anyone passionate about the cause to join us as we honor the survivors living with a history of cancer in America today. The Cancer Survivor’s Day Celebration and Luncheon will be held Friday, June 1, from 11:45-1:00 p.m. at Methodist Sugar Land Hospital – Conference Center. RSVP Required. Please RSVP your attendance by May 29 to Frances Goerlich by calling 281-274-7930 or emailing at FGoerlich@tmhs.org.
