At Logan Regional Hospital, we celebrate every cancer survivor. After cancer treatment has ended, the patient often has completely new issues facing him or her. Our education center and support staff are available to teach how to use proper nutrition, exercise and to give emotional support while the patient is recovering. When treatment ends, new instruction is given for the recovery process.
As with any major illness, recovery can be a long process. It’s important to seek help when necessary and find comfort in family, friends and fellow survivors. The Cancer Center at Logan Regional participates in several events throughout the year celebrating survivorship and raising awareness about cancer. These events are created especially for current patients, survivors and their families. Event details and contact information is listed below for those who want to be involved.
Cancer Survivors Day
The National Cancer Survivors Day was first announced by Merril Hastings at the second national conference meeting of the national coalition for Cancer Survivorship in Albuquerque, New Mexico on November 20, 1987. The first national Cancer Survivors Day was held on June 5th, 1988.
Local towns, cities, hospitals and support groups usually host events and celebrations to honor local cancer survivors. Logan Regional Hospital hosts a Cancer Survivors Day event each year. The celebration includes testimonials, speakers, music, craft projects, exhibits and lunch for all survivors and their caregivers. It usually takes place around the first weekend in June.
If you have questions about recovery, survivorship or survivor events, call (435) 716-6400.
