PCSH to host National Cancer Survivors Day celebration

On National Cancer Survivors Day® thousands of people in hundreds of communities across the globe will hold celebrations to honor cancer survivors and show the world that life after a cancer diagnosis can be fruitful, rewarding and even inspiring.

In celebration, the Peitz Cancer Support House of Baxter Regional Medical Center is hosting Together We’re Reel Survivors on Saturday, June 2 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Big Spring Park in Cotter. Activities will include a Survivor Walk across Cotter Bridge, fly fishing and kayak lessons and demonstrations, nature walk, activities for kids and more!

This event is a celebration for those who have survived, an inspiration for those recently diagnosed, a gathering of support for families, and an outreach to the community. It is a day for everyone, whether you’re a cancer survivor, family member, friend, or medical professional. Men, women, and children of all ages are encouraged to attend.
