Cancer survivors enjoy support, entertainment at Aiken Regional cookout

October 5, 2018

Aiken Regional Medical Centers held its annual Cancer Survivors Day luncheon on Friday afternoon.

The cookout celebrates cancer survivors of the Cancer Care Institute of Carolina at Aiken Regional. This year marked Aiken Regional’s 23rd Cancer Survivor’s Day luncheon.

The attendees ranged from one-year survivors to those who were celebrating decades of beating the disease.

Survivors also brought friends, family, and supporters with them to the event.

Aiken Regional sent out personalized invitations to the survivors in September for the luncheon.

Aiken Regional staff said around 400 people came out to the event this year, which was held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Cancer Care Institute on Miracle Drive.
