Celebrate Life! Living With, Through and Beyond a Diagnosis of Cancer

The 27th National Cancer Survivor’s Day, which was celebrated this year on Sunday, June 1, is an annual, worldwide “Celebration of Life” held in hundreds of communities throughout the US, Canada, and beyond.

Once again, the Joan Karnell Supportive Care Program at ACC PAH strives to enforce the national initiative to improve the care of cancer patients as they transition from active treatment to survivorship. For the second year, the ACC PAH is kicking cancer survivorship celebrations up a notch with events throughout the whole month of June. Resources, education, support and empowerment for survivors and their loved ones and caregivers, are available as we focus on our out-patients undergoing treatment and follow-up at all our treatment sites – Medical Oncology, Infusion, Radiation Oncology, and Penn Medicine Radnor – as well as our inpatients on 6 Schiedt and 5 Cathcart.
