National Cancer Survivors Day at Westminster


The Westminster Cancer Ministry will sponsor its 6th annual National Cancer Survivors Day Celebration on Thursday, June 7, at 7pm in the Fellowship Hall of the Friendly Avenue Campus. All cancer survivors (including those recently diagnosed, currently in treatment, or in remission), as well as families, care-givers and friends, are invited and urged to attend. As a faith community, we are a part of the care-giving team through our presence, prayers, and encouragement. We hope everyone will consider attending this special hope-filled event.

The featured speaker will be Greensboro resident Ms. Margaret Burnham, a ten-year survivor of Stage 4 Colon Cancer. Her message, “Hope and Healing," is based upon her own eighteen month journey of treatment at the Duke University Cancer Center. A woman of faith and an active member of Irving Park United Methodist Church, Margaret will share her story, which includes the power of love and support of family and friends, prayer and maintaining as much physical activity and fun in her life as possible. Her two daughters were ages 7 and 10 when she was diagnosed and, as she says, "her story is very much part of their story."
