SCRANTON — The Northeast Regional Cancer Institute’s Cancer Survivors Day Planning Committee finalized plans for the 24th Annual Cancer Survivors Day – Honoring, Remembering, Sharing. Cancer survivors, patients, caregivers, oncology medical professionals and healthcare professionals, family and friends or any individual affected by a cancer diagnosis in northeast Pennsylvania are invited to attend.
This year, participants can choose between two locations and dates for the events: Saturday, Sept. 10 at Kirby Park in Wilkes-Barre and Saturday, Sept. 24 at McDade Park in Scranton. Both events will take place from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Each event will include the Circle of Survivors, an activity where those in attendance will be able to share a thought or inspirational message about their cancer experience. Additionally, there will be a survivor’s banner, survivor and caregiver ribbons and pins, program booklets, musical performances and light refreshments.
