UTMC to celebrate cancer survivors with reception June 8

In honor of June being National Cancer Survivor Month, the Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center at The University of Toledo is honoring cancer survivors with a celebration reception on Thursday, June 8.

Registration begins at 5:30 p.m., and the free program starts at 6:10 p.m. Each cancer survivor can bring a guest.

“Every year of survivorship is a reason for joy,” said Renee Schick, manager of the UTMC Survivor Shop and cancer survivor. “We believe it is important to celebrate all cancer survivors and their unique experiences, as well as provide continued support and connect them to community resources available as they continue their journey.”

The celebration will bring together survivors to share their stories and introduce various community services and organizations. The event features door prizes and music. Food and beverages will be served.

Guests will also have the opportunity to have their photo taken with Porshia, UTMC’s therapy dog.
