INTEGRIS Cancer Institute Celebrates National Cancer Survivors Day
OKLAHOMA CITY (May 22, 2017) – Members of the community are invited to join the INTEGRIS Cancer Institute from 1 to 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 4, for their 30th annual Cancer Survivors Day luncheon to recognize cancer survivors, at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, 1700 NE 63rd St., Oklahoma City. The butterfly release will be at 2:30 p.m.
The event includes a complimentary lunch and survivor recognition, and closes with the simultaneous release of butterflies by survivors, family members and caregivers in honor of those touched by cancer.
This year we welcome Katherine Piderman, Ph.D., chaplain, Mayo Clinic, and associate professor of psychiatry at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine. Dr. Piderman will share inspirational accounts of people she has met who are living with cancer, including ways they experience and offer joy and meaning in each day.
National Cancer Survivors Day® is Sunday, June 4, 2017. This annual celebration of life will be held in hundreds of communities worldwide. Cancer survivors, caregivers, family members, friends and health care professionals will unite to show that life after a cancer diagnosis can be meaningful, productive and inspiring.
