Valley View’s Calaway-Young Cancer Center Honors Local Cancer Survivors on June 18

Who/What:

Every cancer survivor has a personal and unique story of their cancer journey. In celebration of National Cancer Survivor Month, commemorated annually during the month of June, the community is invited to join the Calaway-Young Cancer Center at Valley View on Tuesday, June 18 to honor local cancer survivors and their loved ones and remember those who are no longer with us.

Activities include:

  • Live music by Shaefer Welch
  • Complimentary coffee and snacks from Aspen Mini Donuts and Jimmy John’s
