St. Joseph’s recognizes National Cancer Survivors Day with Celebration of Life

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – In recognition of National Cancer Survivors Day on June 4, St. Joseph’s Mercy Health Center is sponsoring the 12th annual Cancer Survivors Day Celebration of Life.

This spring’s two-hour, community-wide event is in Room 207 of the Hot Springs Convention Center, 134 Convention Blvd. It is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m., with a focus on honoring cancer survivors from the community.

“No matter how recent the diagnosis, anyone who has ever been diagnosed with the disease is considered a survivor,” said Mercy Cancer Center Product Line Manager Vicky Sanders, RN. “The Cancer Survivors Day Celebration of Life is open to all survivors in the community. We look forward, along with their families and friends, to honoring those who have fought cancer and won or who are currently battling the disease. We also hope the event will help increase awareness and provide a message of hope to those who attend.”

Television and radio personality Matt Mosler will serve as the event’s master of ceremonies, with entertainer Mark Ayers also slated to perform. The event’s scheduled agenda also includes time for the recognition of local and area cancer survivors, remarks from Radiation Oncologist Dr. David Pruitt and Medical Oncologist Dr. Stephen Fred Divers on cancer survivorship and an inspirational message of hope from cancer survivor Nancy Moore and Medical Oncologist Dr. Charles Lattuada.

Sanders will initiate the event’s festivities with a welcome message, followed by the opening prayer of cancer survivor Sister Liz Koehler, R.S.M.

There is no charge for admission to the event, which will also feature refreshments and door prizes. For more information on the Cancer Survivors Day Celebration of Life, please call (501) 622-2100.
