Expressions of Courage Survivor Celebration
We are delighted that so many of you were able to attend the 2017 Expressions of Courage Survivor Celebration! This year more than 400 people were in attendance as Markey patients, together with their support groups and caregivers, were joined by Markey faculty and staff to mark yet another
milestone in their cancer battles. A video and pictures of this memorable and meaningful time have been posted here for your enjoyment. Thank you for your time and contributions to this special event.
What is Expressions of Courage?
Cancer struggles can bring about powerful emotions, and patients convey their feelings in varied, personal ways. Expressions of Courage is designed as a showcase for those feelings, a celebration of both human creativity and the human spirit. Please note that this
occasion is for all survivors. You need not contribute art to participate. Members of the Healthy Living Panel are also available to further enhance the recovery process. June is Cancer Survivorship Month and thus a good time for this annual gathering.
We invite you to join faculty and staff by participating in our Wreath Auction this holiday season, which helps to raise money for Expressions of Courage! You can donate a wreath that will be sold to the highest bidder at the close of the auction.
Handmade donations are encouraged but purchased wreaths are accepted as well. If you wish, you can also participate in the online auction. It will run from December 4-7 (Mon.-Thurs.). If you’re the highest bidder, you will be notified by email and may pick up your wreath on Friday,
Watch this space for more details on participation in his fun event.
