Cancer Survivors Invited to Attend Survivors’ Reception
(Kahoka, Mo.) — The American Cancer Society would like to extend an invitation to cancer survivors and to a celebration reception. On Sunday June 6, 2010, the American Cancer Society is hosting the 10th annual Relay For Life of Clark County Cancer Survivors’ Reception.
The reception will take place at Christian Church on Highway 81 north. The reception is a chance for local survivors to get together for a light meal donated by Steve’s Family Dining, to learn more about this years’ Relay For Life event.. Attendees will enjoy entertainment by Janet Ramsey and Rachael Cook.
The Survivors’ Reception is a kick-off event hosted before the American Cancer Society Relay For Life, the organization’s signature activity. Relay offers everyone in a community the opportunity to fight back against cancer.
“We are very excited about this year’s Cancer Survivors’ Reception,” said Janet Ramsey, Survivor Reception Chairperson, “We are looking forward to paying tribute to the tremendous personal journey that cancer survivors have been on. Every survivor is invited, whether they were diagnosed yesterday or 30 years ago.” Relay allows communities to celebrate the lives of those who have survived their personal battle with cancer. For the newly diagnosed, Relay offers an opportunity to meet someone who has survived the same type of cancer. For the cancer patient in treatment, Relay provides an opportunity to share with others. For the long-term survivor, Relay brings a communities’ recognition of the struggle and closure to a trying time in their life.
“At Relay, and at the Survivors’ Reception, everyone understands the challenges that cancer survivors have overcome and there is peace of mind knowing that together we can face the challenges ahead,” said Ramsey. The Survivors’ Reception reservations are required by June 1, 2010.
