NEVADA CANCER INSTITUTE INVITES COMMUNITY TO CELEBRATE SURVIVORSHIP ON NATIONAL CANCER SURVIVORS DAY® – SUNDAY, JUNE 5
Free event offers workshops, activities and resources for cancer survivors and their families
Nevada Cancer Institute invites the community to celebrate those who have fought cancer and won, as the nation marks National Cancer Survivors Day® 2011 on Sunday, June 5. The Institute will host a special open house offering workshops, activities and resources for survivors, their families, friends and supporters. All are welcome to stop by this free event on Sunday, June 5 between 1:00 and 4:00 p.m. at the NVCI main campus at One Breakthrough Way (near Town Center and the 215 Beltway) in Summerlin.
“We all have a family member, colleague or friend who has been impacted by cancer,” said Dr. Phillip Manno, NVCI’s interim director. “National Cancer Survivors Day® celebrates the stories of survivors – their courage, their hope and their resilience.”
NVCI’s National Cancer Survivors Day® event will feature free workshops such as yoga, meditation and nutrition, as well as craft activities for the whole family and links to resources, including support groups. Survivors are invited to share their personal stories in a special scrapbook, which NVCI will share as an inspiration to others impacted by cancer.
