Cancer Survivors Day planned

Staff report

LAURINBURG — Keiko Fore is a three-time cancer survivor and she continues to beat the odds.

Over the course of 40 years, Fore has been diagnosed with cervical, breast, and skin cancer. She knows what it’s like to have endured so much.

She attributes her success to the staff of Scotland Cancer Treatment Center.

“I’ve talked patients who have been recently diagnosed and have undergone treatment,” she sauid. “I tell them that even though there may be pain, that just means you’re alive. I’m so comforted knowing Scotland Cancer Treatment Center is on my side through my treatment plan.”

Fore plans to attend Scotland Cancer Treatment Center’s annual Cancer Survivors Day celebration Friday at 6:30pm.

The event is open to those who have experienced a cancer diagnosis, regardless of where treatment has been provided. No reservations are required for this event. Each cancer survivor and their one guest are invited to dinner and an evening of themed celebration at Laurinburg Presbyterian Church.

Due to space limitations, additional guest are $15 each.

A “survivor” is defined as anyone living with a history of cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life, according to the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation, which reports that about 10.5 million Americans are cancer survivors.

The event is made possible with support of Scotland Memorial Foundation.
