Cancer survivors to be honored Friday at Blessing Hospital

National Cancer Survivors Day

QUINCY — Cancer survivors from across the area are invited to Blessing Hospital at noon on Friday, June 3 for the National Cancer Survivor Day celebration on parking lot 21 of the Blessing campus at 11th and College.

The event will consist of a survivor parade, carnival games and prizes, an appearance by “Darla, the pink ambulance” and snacks and refreshments. 

Successful cancer treatment depends almost as much on patient attitude as it does on high quality care, according to Dr. Robert Johnson, medical director of the Blessing Cancer Center. The caregivers of the Blessing Cancer Center are the hosts of the event to appreciate and to recognize the spirit of the cancer survivor.
