Nazareth Hospital Honors Patients at Annual Cancer Survivors’ Day Event

NORTHEAST PHILADELPHIA (June 11, 2015): Current and former cancer patients reunited with their doctors, nurses and other caregivers for National Cancer Survivors’ Day held at Nazareth Hospital on Sunday, June 7. More than 80 cancer survivors and their guests attended the event titled, “Time to Celebrate You.” During the event, survivors were presented with T-shirts and other gifts to celebrate their feat.

Nazareth Hospital’s Cancer Survivors Day committee, chaired by Cancer Nurse Navigator Terrie Cannon, BSN, RN, OCN; and Chief Radiation Technologist Candy McLaughlin, has hosted the event for more than 19 years.

Nazareth Hospital, a member of the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Network, offers patients with cancer leading-edge diagnostics such as digital mammography, medical oncology, image-guided radiation therapy and infusion services. Nazareth Hospital recently opened a new outpatient infusion suite that features larger infusion bays and a private room, all in a peaceful, soothing environment.

National Cancer Survivors Day is an annual worldwide celebration of life. Participants unite in this event to show the world that life after a cancer diagnosis can be a reality. Nazareth was one of many care providers across the country and around the world hosting a celebration.
