The Phoenix Expo was filled with cancer survivors and their friends and family all to celebrate National Cancer Survivor’s Day on Saturday, June 2, 2012. Each survivor received a beautiful purple petunia plant compliments of Fort Smith Radiation Oncology. Jennifer Stuart, FSRO massage therapist and Donald W. Reynolds Cancer Support House volunteer provided complimentary chair massages to the attendees and members of the FSRO staff handed out the office’s new brochures and candy to the public.
At 2pm, Dr. Kris Gast took stage to present her History of Cancer skit. Several children of the FSRO office staff were dressed up in costumes from different periods of time to go along with Dr. Gast’s story.
At 3pm, survivor recognition began. All survivors went to the stage to be recognized for their number of years since their diagnosis. The longest survivor has been cancer free for 53 years!
