In an effort to congratulate those who are winning the battle, the American Cancer Society,
Stormont-Vail HealthCare, St. Francis Health Center and Envista Credit Union will sponsor the annual
Cancer Survivor’s Day Picnic on Sunday, June 1, at the Agricultural Hall at the Kansas Expocentre.
Topeka area cancer survivors and their families are invited to the free celebration. Door open at 5:15
In the early years, the annual event was held in Gage Park, but moved to the Agricultural Hall at the
Kansas Expocentre in 2003. For some survivors, it an annual chance to mark their personal milestone at
surviving a cancer experience. The event usually draws more than 500 people.
At this year’s event survivors will get a chance to enjoy the evening with family and friends. Local
businesses have donated items to be given away as door prizes the night of the event. Admission is free.
Registration begins at 5:15 p.m., and dinner will be served at 6:20 p.m. A survivor is anyone who is a
current or past patient with a diagnosis with cancer. You are a survivor regardless of your current status.
