Intercommunity Cancer Centers of Leesburg and Lady Lake Host Second Annual Cancer Survivors’ Reunion
With the holidays in full swing, many of us are giving thanks for family, friends and good health.
For cancer survivors, this time of year takes on even greater meaning because each day represents one more day they can spend with their loved ones as they continue to fight their disease. To honor these local cancer survivors and their indomitable spirit, InterCommunity Cancer Centers (ICCC) of Leesburg and Lady Lake recently hosted its Second Annual Cancer Survivors’ Reunion on Friday, November 16th.
More than 260 people attended the free event and enjoyed great food, refreshments, 40 prize giveaways and live entertainment, while sharing their own personal stories of survival. ICCC radiation oncologists Dr. Herman Flink, Dr. Bobby Harrison and Dr. Maureen Holasek were on hand to provide tours of the cancer center as well as answer questions about the latest trends and developments in cancer care.
“As cancer specialists, we continue to work diligently to find new radiation and drug therapies to improve survival rates. However, we must not forget the emotional impact cancer has on patients and their families. By hosting events such as the Cancer Survivors’ Reunion, we are providing a nurturing environment that enables survivors to share their experiences and hopefully lend support to those patients recently diagnosed,” said Dr. Flink.
There is a saying that some pictures are worth a thousand words, so ICCC is taking this opportunity to share with you some amazing photos from the Second Annual Cancer Survivors’ Reunion. From the smiles and hugs to the tears of joy and uncontrollable laughter, the patients in the following photos are the real faces of cancer survival. They are who inspire ICCC’ physicians and nurses everyday with their courage and will to live. This holiday season, let’s all celebrate our family, friends, neighbors and local residents who are affected by cancer. Let’s all celebrate those who refuse to say “I can’t” and those who say “I will” beat cancer.
