EvergreenHealth invites locals to an open house celebration of cancer survivorship and joy on June 3 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the EvergreenHealth Halvorson Cancer Center in Kirkland. The event is free and open to the community.

Attendees will have the opportunity to visit with EvergreenHealth physicians and staff while celebrating the life of cancer survivors. The event will also recognize EvergreenHealth’s fifth anniversary of the Halvorson Cancer Center, a partnership between EvergreenHealth and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance that offers patients access to the best providers, innovative treatments and clinical trials.

The event will also celebrate EvergreenHealth’s 40th year of cancer program accreditation by the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer, which recognizes the program for consistently meeting several national benchmarks for providing high-quality care.

National Cancer Survivors Day is an annual celebration of life, held in hundreds of communities around the world on the first Sunday in June. It serves as a celebration for those who have survived, an inspiration for those recently diagnosed, a gathering of support for families and a resource for the community.
