Survivors Day Celebration

Spencer, IA (KICD)–The Abben Cancer Center of Spencer Hospital is hosting a Survivors Day Celebration on Thursday.

Marketing Vice President Susan Zulk tells KICD News that this event is a celebration for anyone who has survived, an inspiration for those recently diagnosed, a gathering of support for loved ones and an outreach to the community.

Ray Meyer will be on hand playing the Grand Piano during the celebration and local artist Beth Preston, wife of medical oncologist Dr. Glenn Preston, will be demonstrating painting with beeswax.

Approximately 12 million Americans are now living with and beyond a diagnosis of cancer.

Thursday’s Survivors Day Celebration takes place from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. in the main lobby of Spencer Hospital.
