NEA Baptist Clinic Oncology Team and HopeCircle host National Cancer Survivor Day Celebration

On Sunday, June 3 2012, NEA Baptist Clinic - Oncology and NEA Baptist Charitable Foundation HopeCircle will be hosting a celebration for the 25th annual National Cancer Survivors Day. The celebration will take place from 2:00 - 4:00 pm at the Hilton Garden Inn, located at 2840 S. Caraway Road in Jonesboro, AR. The celebration is open to all cancer survivors and their families. The celebration will include food, door prizes, music and family fun.

 The celebration will be both fun and informative for survivors and their families. A video of the new NEA Baptist Center for Cancer Care facility will be shown at the celebration. The first of its kind in our region, NEA Baptist Center for Cancer Care, opening in June 2013, will bring together the area's most respected oncology physicians in one extraordinary new facility housing research, diagnosis, treatment and support side-by-side.

 There are currently more than 12 million cancer survivors in the United States, according to the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation. There will be 1.5 million new cancer cases diagnosed this year in the United States. National Cancer Survivors Day celebrates the life of a cancer survivor - anyone living with a history of cancer, from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life.

HopeCircle is one of the five NEA Baptist Charitable foundation programs. This program, free to the public, helps patients and families who have been diagnosed with cancer or other catastrophic illness. Through donations from the community, HopeCircle is able to offer free resources, blankets, wigs and more to patients diagnosed with cancer.
