CMH Hosts Celebration for Cancer Survivors
Ventura, California, 04/09//2012
On Sunday, June 3, 2012, Community Memorial Hospital’s Cancer Resource Center will be holding a Cancer Survivors Day celebration to honor cancer survivors.
A “cancer survivor” is anyone living with a history of cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life, according to the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation, which reports that an estimated 12 million Americans are cancer survivors.
The event will include food, as well as games, raffles and speakers. The event is a celebration of life and hope. The celebration will begin at 11:30 at the Ventura Beach Marriott in Ventura.
The CMH Cancer Resource Center offers a variety of services designed to meet the needs of individuals faced with a diagnosis of cancer, as well as providing programs for family members, friends and the community-at large. These services are offered free of charge in a comfortable, non-hospital setting.
Cancer Survivors Day celebration is a collaborative effort of Community Memorial Hospital, the American Cancer Society and the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation. Reservations are required. Please call (805) 652-5459 or go to cmhshealth.org/rsvp.
Community Memorial Hospital is a member of Community Memorial Health System, a not-for-profit health system, which is comprised of Community Memorial Hospital, Ojai Valley Community Hospital, and 12 family-practice health centers entitled Centers for Family Health.
