Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene’s Norris Cotton Cancer Center, Kingsbury Pavilion invites cancer survivors, their families and friends to a FREE “Big Top-themed” event from 12-3 pm on Saturday, June 13 at Keene State College’s Zorn Dining Hall in Keene, New Hampshire. A festive luncheon will be provided along with fun music and entertainment.

Anyone living with a history of cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life – is a cancer survivor, according to the National Cancer Survivors Day® Foundation. In the United States alone, there are more than 14 million people living with a history of cancer.

“Come see how life after cancer is more than just surviving. It can be beautiful, abundant, and fulfilling. And that’s something to celebrate,” says Jennifer Michelson, RN, Director of Norris Cotton Cancer Center, Kingsbury Pavilion in Keene, “You will find our community’s Cancer Survivors Day® celebration filled with fun and camaraderie as we celebrate our community’s cancer survivors. We will also recognize the contributions of their families, friends, and healthcare providers and raise awareness of the ongoing challenges faced by cancer survivors today.”
