Southeast Georgia Health System to Host Cancer Survivor Celebration

The Southeast Georgia Health System Cancer Care Center will host a Cancer Survivors Day celebration, Saturday, June 7, 12:15 p.m. - 2 p.m., in the auditorium of the new Brunswick High School, located at 3885 Altama Avenue. The celebration is one of many free activities offered at the Health System’s Community Health and Wellness Fair.

The celebration is being conducted as part of National Cancer Survivors Day®, a symbolic event that takes place in hundreds of communities around the world to show that life after a cancer diagnosis can be meaningful, productive and even inspiring. A cancer survivor is anyone living with a history of cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life.

"The celebration provides us with an opportunity to recognize our local cancer survivors, as well as the caregivers and family members who support them," says Enzo Centofanti, director, Cancer Care Center.

The Cancer Survivors Day celebration will include entertainment, door prizes and guest speakers, including cancer survivors, Mayor Cornell Harvey, and Antonio Moran Jr., M.D., board-certified medical oncologist with Southeast Georgia Physician Associates-Hematology & Oncology. The event is free and open to all cancer survivors and their families and caregivers.

The Community Health and Wellness Fair activities take place 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. and include a variety of activities, including free and low-cost health screenings, brown bag medication reviews, hands-on da Vinci® robotic surgery demonstrations, a Teddy Bear Clinic for children, and infant car and booster seat safety checks.
