Cancer center celebrates survivors

Survivors of cancer will gather this evening when the Commack branch of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center marks National Cancer Survivorship Day.

About 1,000 cancer survivors and their guests, along with caregivers and Sloan-Kettering staff, are expected to attend the 6 p.m. event at Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury.

Speakers will include medical staff from Sloan-Kettering facilities in Commack and Rockville Centre, and Jennifer Goodman Linn, a sarcoma survivor who founded Cycle for Survival, a cycling group that has raised more than $4 million to support Memorial Sloan-Kettering research of rare cancers.

The Commack branch, at 650 Commack Rd., provides outpatient cancer treatment, including medical oncology, chemotherapy, radiation oncology, radiology, surgery consultations and genetic counseling.
