If you know a cancer survivor, caregiver or family member who might benefit from a day of honor, have them sign up for the Providence Regional Cancer System Cancer Survivor Celebration, set for Saturday, June 1, 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Saint Martin’s University.

You do not have to be a Providence patient to attend. To register, use the QR code or visit the Providence Swedish website. For questions or to register by phone, please call 360.412.8951.

“We are proud to bring back our survivorship event for the 10th time,” said Providence South Puget Sound Senior Director of Oncology Services Ryan Moore. “This event has produced incredible memories and stories.”

The celebration, put on through support from the Providence Southwest Washington Foundation, will include physician and patient panels and informative sessions about nutrition, emotional adjustment, genetic counseling, and more.

The keynote speaker is Conor Cunneen, is an Irishman happily exiled in the United States who has been working on his Chicago accent for 20 years (with very little success). Conor is a two-time cancer survivor (thyroid and prostate) who gives thanks every day to the caregivers and great healthcare professionals who helped him through his journey. A man who always looks on the bright side of life, he says “Having had a thyroidectomy and a prostatectomy, I now have an Irish condition known as ‘there is not much left-o-me!‘ ” Conor combines experiences from Europe and USA with an Irish wit and humor that will have you leaving with a smile on the face, a spring in the step AND memorable, actionable ideas to make this world just a little better place.
