The James Beck Cancer Center will host the sixth annual Celebration of Life – Spreading Hope, Courage and Love on Thursday, Aug. 15, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The event will take place at the James Beck Cancer Center on the grounds of Ministry Saint Mary’s Hospital, located at 2251 North Shore Drive in Rhinelander.
The celebration is to honor cancer survivors for their strength and courage; to recognize the contributions of their families, friends and health care providers; to promote awareness that knowledge, hope and inspiration can help beat cancer; and to emphasize the fact that cancer survivors can live active, productive lives, even though they still face many challenges.
This year’s guest speaker is Marcia Gunderson. She is a four-year survivor of breast cancer, having been diagnosed in February 2009. She was treated at James Beck Cancer Center with chemotherapy and radiation and is currently in remission.
