Nanticoke Cancer Care Services
Time: 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM Location: Seaford Moose Lodge ( 22759 Bridgeville Hwy., Seaford, DE 19973) Description: The 29th Annual National Cancer Survivors Day (NCSD) will be held on Sunday, June 5, 2016. Thousands of people in hundreds of communities across the globe will hold celebrations on this day to honor cancer survivors and to show the world that life after a cancer diagnosis can be fruitful, rewarding, and even inspiring. Nanticoke Cancer Care Center is hosting a Celebration of Life on Sunday, June 5, 2016 at the Seaford Moose Lodge from 1:00 pm to 3:30 pm to commemorate National Cancer Survivors Day and YOU’RE INVITED! “Come and see how life after cancer is more than just surviving. It can be beautiful, abundant, and fulfilling - and that is something to celebrate,” says Terri Clifton, NCSD Coordinator for Nanticoke Cancer Care Center. “You will find our community’s National Cancer Survivor Day event to be filled with hope, compassion, faith, and joy as we honor cancer survivors for their strength and courage. We will also recognize the contributions of their families, friends, and healthcare providers and discuss the issues of cancer survivorship.” Nanticoke will celebrate local survivors with a luncheon that includes entertainment and door prizes. Lon Kieffer, known as “DOC” (the “Defender of the Caregivers”), will be the guest speaker. He is a National Speaker on caregiving issues and is also a cancer survivor. This year’s entertainment will be provided by Jerry Jones, country gospel singer, who is also a cancer survivor. This local event is part of a worldwide celebration coordinated by the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation and supported nationally by Coping with Cancer magazine. Anyone living with a history of cancer - from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life - is a cancer survivor, according to the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation. In the United States alone, there are more than 14.5 million people living with a history of cancer. Major advances in cancer prevention, early detection, and treatment have resulted in longer survival, and therefore, a growing number of cancer survivors. However, a cancer diagnosis can leave a host of problems in its wake. Physical, financial, and emotional hardships often persist for years after diagnosis and treatment. Survivors may face many challenges such as limited access to cancer specialists and promising new treatments, inadequate or no insurance, financial hardships, employment problems, and psychological struggles. The lack of understanding from family and friends can be a challenge too. In light of these difficulties, our community needs to focus on improving the quality of life for cancer survivors. “Despite the numerous challenges, cancer survivors live full, productive lives and serve as an inspiration to us all.” says Terri Clifton, NCSD Coordinator. “It’s time for our community to stand with them and help find ways to lessen the burdens a cancer diagnosis brings. To register for Nanticoke’s National Cancer Survivors Day event, please contact Terri Clifton at 302-629-6611, ext. 2577. For more information about National Cancer Survivors Day, visit www.ncsd.org.

It is simply heartbreaking, awe-inspiring, and truly moving. Delaware All-State Theatre is proud to present “TITANIC the musical”. The 5-time Tony Award winning musical is set on the historic real-life ocean liner RMS Titanic, which sank on its maiden voyage on April 15, 1912. This touching and stunning spectacle sets sail in June 2016 at the Laird Performing Arts Center on the campus of Tattnall School. Watch dreams and excitement turn to desperation and despair. Meet Thomas Andrews, the architect of the huge ship who contemplates the blueprints of his design. Watch the stoker, Barrett, who wants so badly to escape from the coal mines. See Murdoch, an officer on the ship, contemplate commanding the gigantic vessel as Captain. Fall in love with Kate McGowan and other third-class passengers yearn for a better life in America. The passengers' dreams allow them a chance to slip away from the world and business at hand. When the ship begins to wander through the dark of the night into dangerous and icy waters, you are on board as the ship steams ahead toward a collision with destiny on a night that will always be remembered.
