Are you or a family member a cancer survivor?
The Stephen and Barbara Slaggie Family Cancer Education Center is hosting a free video series to celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day. This event is open to cancer survivors, family members and caregivers. A separate track is available for English- and Spanish-speaking viewers.
Beginning June 6, and continuing thereafter every Monday in June, a different video featuring cancer survivorship topics from health care experts and cancer survivors will be available.
