Martin Memorial to Host 11th Annual Cancer Survivors Day Event on June 4

Martin Memorial will celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day with an event on Friday, June 4 from noon to 2 p.m. at the Robert and Carol Weissman Cancer Center.

Cancer survivors, their families and friends are invited to the 11th-annual event at Martin Memorial, where they can share inspirational stories, enjoy lunch and entertainment. This year’s event will have a baseball theme, including a visit from St. Lucie Mets players and Slider, the team’s mascot. Tickets to St. Lucie Mets games will be available as door prizes.

The Robert and Carol Weissman Cancer Center is located at 501 E. Osceola Street in Stuart. The event will be held in the resource library on the second floor of the cancer center. Space is limited, so please RSVP for the celebration by calling (772) 223-5945, ext. 3736. Event parking is available in the garage next to the cancer center.

Now in its 23rd year, National Cancer Survivors Day is a world-wide celebration of those who have fought cancer. A survivor is considered anyone living with a history of cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life. The National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation estimates there are more than 11 million Americans who fit that description.
