May 28, 2015 – The courage and determination of cancer survivors
is an inspiration to all. On Saturday, June 6, Southeast Georgia Health
System Cancer Care Center invites cancer survivors to join them to celebrate
life in recognition of National Cancer Survivors Day®. The recognition
is one of many free activities offered at the Health System’s Community
Health and Wellness Fair at the Brunswick High School, 3885 Altama Avenue.
National Cancer Survivors Day® events take place in hundreds of communities
around the world to honor cancer survivors and 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. In the United States
alone, there are more than 14 million people living with a history of cancer.
“The recognition provides us with an opportunity to recognize our
local cancer survivors, as well as the caregivers and family members who
support them,” says Stephanie Sinopoli, director, Cancer Care Centers.
“We invite survivors to stop by our booth at the Health Fair and
sign our ‘Celebrating Life’ banner. We’ll also have
giveaways and gift basket drawings.”
The Community Health and Wellness Fair takes place on Saturday, June 6,
10 a.m.-2 p.m., and includes a variety of activities, including free and
low-cost health screenings, mammograms, medication reviews, hands-on da
Vinci® robotic surgery demonstrations, a Teddy Bear Clinic for children,
and infant car and booster seat safety checks. For more information, visit
