Faces of Hope Open House Set for July 27

On Wednesday, July 27, Harbin Clinic celebrates 11 individuals who have fought cancer and won with the unveiling of the 2016 Faces of Hope exhibit at the first floor gallery of the Cancer Center from noon to 1:30 p.m.

“The Faces of Hope survivor stories provide hope and offer everyone a glimpse into the courageous battle each of these individuals have fought or continue to fight against cancer,” says Dr. Melissa Dillmon, Oncology Department Chair. “It’s great for all of us to see the healthy, happy faces of former patients. It helps remind us about the difference we’re helping make in their lives.”

The individuals who will be celebrated at the events include: Crystal Davis, Christopher Honeycutt, Tina Huckaby, Joshua Mousseau, Henry Pollitz, Amy Burgess, Megan Mobbs, Montyne Payne, Dr. William Payne, Harry McConnell and Carol Waddell.

The Faces of Hope exhibit combines beautiful black-and-white portraits of each survivor along with a placard detailing the survivor’s journey from the time of their diagnosis to their recovery – in their own words.

Local photographer Kelly Moore captured the images, which help tell each survivor’s tale.

“It’s an honor to be able to work with these amazing individuals who have been through so much, but have found a way to fight and overcome cancer,” says Moore.

Since opening in 2011, the Harbin Clinic Cancer Center has been a beacon for support and strength for cancer patients and their families in Rome and Northwest Georgia. The cancer center provides everything patients and families need from prevention and detection, diagnosis, learning about cancer and anti-cancer treatments, to providing support through complementary, integrative therapies and survivorship.
