•Listen to the soothing sounds of a cellist and bag piper
•Visit with our SwedishAmerican Caring Canines and SwedishAmerican’s mascot SAM the dog

“The event is geared towards the whole family, to celebrate their loved ones survivorship and visit with others who went through the same journey as they did,” said SwedishAmerican Regional Cancer Center Director Diane Scoville. “Battling cancer is one of the hardest things one will go through in a lifetime so we look forward to this event and celebrating those whose lives have been touched by cancer.”
