Cancer survivors and their families and friends are invited to the eighth annual National Cancer Survivors Day on Sunday, June 10. The event, sponsored by Gloria and Mark Snyder, features Ted Kennedy Jr., who will discuss “Facing the Challenge: Surviving Cancer.”
Since losing one of his legs to bone cancer in 1973 at the age of 12, Ted Kennedy Jr. has devoted his life’s work to advocating civil rights for the disabled. He has lectured around the world about his experiences with cancer to help motivate, teach and inspire future generations of cancer survivors to stand up for their rights and take charge of their lives.
