St. Joseph Mercy Brighton cancer center to celebrate 10-year anniversary
To celebrate its 10-year anniversary and National Cancer Survivors Day® , St. Joseph Mercy Brighton Cancer Center, named for Warren R. and Lauraine A. Hoensheid, will host a celebration on Sunday, June 5, 2016 at St. Joseph Mercy Brighton.
At the event, members of the community will join physicians and staff for a brief program led by Health Reporter Lila Lazarus to rededicate the Cancer Center and honor cancer survivors in the community. All cancer survivors and their families, no matter where they received their care, are welcome to attend.
Tours of the center will be available with clinicians stationed to demonstrate services offered in that area. Survivors will be invited to plant a perennial in a flower bed in front of the Cancer Center as a symbol of growth and healing, courtesy of Livingston Landscape.
“We are so pleased to take a moment to reflect on how far we have come and share this important milestone with patients and their families in Livingston County,” said John Stout, regional director of Oncology Services, Saint Joseph Mercy Health System. “We have taken care of more than 4,600 patients at the Brighton Cancer Center since we opened a decade ago. The strength and courage of all cancer patients is something to celebrate.”
