Cancer survivors dayTell North Platte what you think

Great Plains Callahan Cancer Center will host a cancer survivor’s event Sunday to celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day.

“NCSD provides an opportunity for cancer survivors to connect with other survivors, celebrate milestones, and recognize the healthcare providers, family, and friends who have supported them along the way,” said Nan Hynes, case management supervisor at Great Plains Regional Medical Center.

According to ncsd.org, NCSD started in the United States in 1987 and is now celebrated worldwide in countries including Canada, Australia, India, South Africa, Greece, Saudi Arabia, Italy, and Malaysia. The purpose of the day is to honor everyone who is living with a history of cancer, including America’s nearly 14 million cancer survivors.

“From family members to close friends, everyone knows someone whose life has been touched by cancer,” Hynes said, “We see this event as a way for us to give back to our patients and their families.”

The Callahan Cancer Center event will be held from 1-3 p.m., in the Callahan Cancer Center lobby at 601 West Leota, North Platte. The ice cream social will begin at 1 p.m., with the cancer survivor ceremony beginning at 1:30 p.m.

For more information about the NCSD Callahan Cancer Center event, please contact Nan Hynes at 308.696.7544.
