QUINCY — Cancer survivors and their loved ones are invited to Blessing Hospital in Quincy for a celebration on Friday, May 31.

The Blessing Cancer Center team will be the host of a National Cancer Survivors Day event from 1 to 3 p.m. in the parking lot at 11th and College. There is no cost to attend. Cancer survivors and their loved ones from across the region – no matter where they were treated – are invited to attend.

Each cancer survivor attending will receive a Cancer Survivors Day T-shirt they can tie dye at the event. Additional T-shirts will be available, and snacks and refreshments will be available. The event will feature a trunk party and photo opportunity.

“More people than ever before are living longer and fuller lives after a cancer diagnosis, and that is a reason to celebrate,” Dr. Robert Johnson, board-certified radiation oncologist and Blessing Cancer Center medical director, said in a press release. “Thanks to new treatments, gains in early cancer detection and the continuing decline in tobacco use, the number of cancer survivors is projected to increase by more than 24 percent by 2032.”
