Cancer society plans survivors’ celebration

— The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Muskogee County encourages cancer survivors and their caregivers to attend a celebration of life and hope on April 20.

The American Cancer Society Survivors’ Celebration Reception will take place at the Spaulding Park Scout House and will kick off the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Muskogee County. The event commemorates the lives of hundreds of Muskogee County residents who have survived cancer, while offering the hope of finding a cure.

Survivors in attendance will also enjoy baked potatoes provided by Mahylon’s and cupcakes provided by Sweet-N-Sassy. “The Cancer Survivors’ Reception is a great opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate life and hope while honoring the personal journey of cancer survivors,” said Anna Stewart, survivor chair. “Every survivor is invited whether they were diagnosed today, yesterday, or 10 years ago.”  

Relay For Life is an overnight community event bringing together teams of families, friends, churches, neighborhoods, and businesses, all with the same goal of curing cancer.

Space at the Survivors’ Celebration Reception is limited to survivors and their guests. Reservations are required to Anna Stewart, (918) 616-3342 by April 6.
