Riverside on the Eastern Shore will observe National Cancer Survivors Day with a Summer Beach Bash on Friday June 8th at the Riverside Shore Cancer Center at 20480 Market Street, Onancock. From 8am through 4pm, cancer survivors can visit the Center, ring the Bell of Hope, connect with other survivors, and celebrate the people who have supported them in their journey.
This annual event is a national celebration of living well after a cancer diagnosis. It is a celebration for those who have survived, an inspiration for those recently diagnosed, a gathering of support for families touched by cancer, and an opportunity for communities to learn more about cancer and specifically about the survivorship resources in their area.
On the Shore, the Cancer Center partners with the American Cancer Society and other local healthcare agencies to provide support for survivors from the time of diagnosis through treatment and back to everyday health. Survivorship services include a care plan for patients after they have finished active treatment as well as lifelong comprehensive oncological follow up care.
The Cancer Center is a resource for the entire Shore community and welcomes inquiries about the services available. For more information, call 757-302-2600.
