UAB to host Survivor’s Day Event

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) – The University of Alabama at Birmingham will be hosting its inaugural Survivor's Day event "Celebrating Life" at Pepper Place on June 5th.

The event is set to celebrate cancer survivors and display their joy, hope, camaraderie and faith.

All cancer survivors, their families, friends and caregivers are invited to come meet each other. Farmers and vendors who base their livelihoods on healthy living will be in attendance and health-education materials and other free items will be available in the survivor tent.

A survivor is defined as "anyone living with a history of cancer, from diagnosis through the remainder of life."
