Middletown, NY – Orange Regional Medical Center’s Spagnoli Family Cancer Center will host a celebration of life and mini health fair in conjunction with National Cancer Survivors Day (NCSD) on Sunday, June 1, 2014. The event will take place on Orange Regional’s Event Lawn located at 707 East Main Street, Middletown from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. This free event is open to anyone that has been diagnosed with cancer, is in treatment for cancer or has completed cancer therapy, as well as their friends, family members and caregivers. The event will include a barbeque, music, giveaways, a mini health fair and, most importantly, a commemoration of the lives of the cancer survivors in our community. Reservations are required by May 31, 2014 by calling 1-888-321-6762.
“We want to celebrate each and every person who is a cancer survivor and recognize the contributions of their families, friends and healthcare providers as people who have provided help and support along the way,” says Orange Regional’s Administrator of Oncology Services, Regina Toomey Bueno. “This is truly a joyous opportunity to applaud their achievements and their perseverance through their cancer journey.”
Anyone living with a history of cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life, is a cancer survivor, according to the NCSD Foundation. According to the American Cancer Society, more than 1.6 million new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed in 2014. Individuals are encouraged to know their family history, learn about different cancers and discuss with their physician warning signs they should be aware of. Early detection is key to surviving cancer.
