Abben Cancer Center of Spencer Hospital is hosting a Survivors’ Day Celebration on Monday, June 3 from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. at Abben Cancer Center. This event provides an opportunity for all people living with a history of cancer or currently undergoing cancer care to connect with each other, celebrate milestones and recognize those who have supported them along the way.

“We encourage all survivors, our current patients and supporters to stop by this come-and-go event. Guests will have an opportunity to enjoy refreshments, visit with dear friends from the Abben Cancer Center care team, and sign our Survivors banner,” encouraged Melissa Cunningham, Abben Cancer Center director.

“National Cancer Survivors Day is a celebration for anyone who has survived, an inspiration for those recently diagnosed, a gathering of support for loved ones and an outreach to the community,” explained Kristy Connor, social worker serving Abben Cancer Center’s patients and families. “You will find our event filled with joy, camaraderie, hope, compassion, faith and love as we honor cancer survivors for their strength and courage. Survivors Day is also a time to recognize the contributions of families, friends and healthcare providers.”      

Please contact the Abben Cancer Center at (712) 264-6550 with questions. This event is for all cancer survivors, their family members, friends and caregivers in the community.
