(Nassawadox, VA) – Riverside on the Eastern Shore will observe National Cancer Survivors Day on Friday June 3rd with an open house at the Riverside Shore Cancer Center. From 9am through 3pm, survivors can visit the Center, ring the Bell of Hope, receive a survivor’s gift bag, and enjoy light refreshments.
This 29th annual event is a national celebration of ‘life after a cancer diagnosis’. It is a celebration for those who have survived, an inspiration for those recently diagnosed, a gathering of support for families touched by cancer, and an opportunity for communities to learn more about cancer in general and specifically about the survivorship resources in their area.
On the Shore, the Cancer Center partners with the American Cancer Society and other local healthcare agencies to provide support for survivors from the time of diagnosis through recovery and back to everyday health. The Cancer Center is a resource for the entire Shore community and welcomes inquiries about the services available. For more information, call 757-414-8355.
