UTMC to celebrate cancer survivors with reception June 8

In honor of June being National Cancer Survivor Month, the Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center at The University of Toledo is honoring cancer survivors with a celebration reception Thursday, June 8. 

Registration will begin at 5:30 p.m., and the free program will start at 6:10 p.m. Each cancer survivor can bring a guest. 

“Every year of survivorship is a reason for joy,” said Renee Schick, manager of the UTMC Survivor Shop and cancer survivor. “We believe it is important to celebrate all cancer survivors and their unique experiences, as well as provide continued support and connect them to community resources available as they continue their journey.” 

The celebration will bring together survivors to share their stories and introduce various community services and organizations. The event will feature door prizes and music. Food and beverages will be served. 

Guests also will have the opportunity to have their photo taken with Porshia, UTMC’s therapy dog.
