Survivors Day

Dozens of are cancer survivors gathered for food, fellowship, and fun in the Scotland Memorial Hospital parking lot on May 20 in recognition of National Cancer Survivors Day.  National Cancer Survivors Day is held each year in celebration of those who have won the battle with cancer, to inspire those who are fighting cancer, and to raise awareness of the ongoing impact that cancer has on the lives of millions of people in our country.

The theme for Scotland Cancer Treatments Center’s evening gathering was “Survivor Round-Up” – an event with a wild west aesthetic.  In addition to hay bales, boots, bandanas, and cowboy hats, the evening included a Food Truck Rodeo offering each guest dinner from one of four visiting food trucks (Patterson’s Steak & Grill, McNeill’s Concession, King Hot Dog, and Domino’s Pizza) and an ice cream dessert from Twisted Treats.

Sandhills Sounds and The Hartsville Bubble Guy were on hand to entertain guests and The Scotland Cancer Treatment Center staff even joined in the fun by dancing as delighted attendees cheered them on.

The event was held free of charge for cancer survivors and a guest, and more than 135 survivors stopped by to enjoy the festivities.  Support from these sponsors provided a fun event for the visiting cancer survivors and their families: Charlie Wallace State Farm, Priority One Home Healthcare, Live Oak Century Farms, S&H Farms, Kip Kiser, and Scotland Memorial Foundation.
