National Cancer Survivors Day is an annual, worldwide Celebration of Life that is held in many communities throughout the United States, Canada, and other participating countries. The celebration is traditionally held on the first Sunday in June.
It's a wonderful day filled with hope, inspiration and friendship as we honor people whose lives have been touched by cancer. This year, join us for our "Daily Zoo" themed celebration on Sunday, June 3, from 10:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. at the Rochester International Event Center (located near the airport) at 7333 Airport View Dr. SW, Rochester, Minn.
The event will include the Minnesota Zoomobile, lunch, a program to honor cancer survivors and a special presentation by Chris Ayers, artist, illustrator, and cancer survivor. He is the author of the "Daily Zoo" books and is a character designer for DreamWorks Animation.
Sponsored by Mayo Clinic Cancer Education Program and the American Cancer Society, admission is free for cancer survivors and two guests. Additional guests are welcome to attend for a fee of $5 per person. Reservations are required by May 29, 2012.
To register, call the Mayo Clinic Cancer Education Program at (507) 538-6001 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
