FLINT — Genesys Hurley Cancer Institute (GHCI) will host a celebration of cancer survivors on Aug. 15, from 5-8 p.m. at the Flint Institute of Arts (FIA), located at 1120 E. Kearsley Street in Flint.

The evening begins at 5 p.m. with hors d’oeuvres as guests stroll through the FIA’s art gallery.

At 6 p.m., GHCI will conduct a brief welcoming ceremony and celebration, followed by a performance by StoweGood, a dynamic duo who will entertain the crowd with uplifting music and inspirational messages. The group is comprised of Grammy-nominated songwriter, author and speaker Karen Taylor (Good); and motivational author, hit song writer and recent cancer survivor Stowe Dailey.

Genesys and Hurley cancer survivors are invited. They are welcome to bring along one guest.

“We are celebrating the thousands of cancer survivors in our community who successfully have fought this disease,” announces Sue Root, director of Quality of Life at GHCI. “It truly is a gathering of support and happiness.

“There is never a bad day to celebrate beating cancer; in fact, most patients celebrate every single day. But, our celebration on Aug. 15 is a time for cancer survivors and their loved ones to stand united in support of one another, to feel empowered and encouraged when looking into the future. It is very heartwarming to see so many survivors in one place, sharing their stories and enjoying their cancer-free life.”

By 2040, it is estimated that there will be more than 26 million cancer survivors in the United States. As medical research and treatment options continue to advance, more people than ever are living as cancer survivors.

The Genesys Hurley Cancer Institute continues to provide the most advanced cancer treatment services, technologies and programs available in one convenient, closeto home location.

From aggressive prevention programs and early detection services to the application of leading-edge diagnostics and treatment techniques, the Genesys Hurley Cancer Institute infuses hope into the heart of our community. — G.G.
