“Cancer Survivors Day is not only a chance to celebrate and thank loved ones for their support, but also a chance to inspire and give strength to Patients currently in treatment,” said James Herman, M.D., Medical Director of the Sparrow Cancer Center. “It’s a really incredible event.”

The local event joined thousands of communities throughout the United States, Canada, and other participating countries in celebrating life as part of the Annual National Cancer Survivors Day, the world’s largest cancer survivor event. A “survivor” is anyone living with a history of cancer, from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life.

The free luncheon picnic was emceed by Dr. Herman, and included live entertainment and children’s activities. A survivor recognition and the awarding of “Cancer Survivor of the Year” for a local adult and pediatric Patient completed the celebration.
