Every April when Greene County’s Relay for Life event takes place, you’ll find Greene County Medical Center hosting the “Survivor Reception.”
Cancer survivors throughout the county receive a special invitation to attend a morning reception, receive a free survivor t-shirt (compliments of the medical center) and are honored during a traditional survivor walk. The walk has all survivors treading a pathway with event attendees on both sides cheering them on. It’s a heartwarming and moving event for all.
Some survivors have attended for years, with new ones attending for the first time each year. The t-shirts have become a badge of courage and are coveted by survivors year after year. Local media also attend to take the annual survivor photo shared in local newspapers and news websites.Share this story.
