Harbin Clinic’s Tony E. Warren, MD Cancer Center has announced that it will host a special Open House event to unveil the newest Faces of Hope cancer survivor photography collection. The event will celebrate and honor those who have completed their active treatment and others who are still battling the disease. The free Open House is scheduled for Thursday, November 20 from 5:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. and is open to the public. Additionally, the Cancer Center’s fourth annual holiday wreath silent auction is currently underway to benefit Cancer Navigators, a Rome-based charity that provides one-on-one services to cancer patients. The silent auction will continue now through Wednesday, November 26 at 1:00 p.m.
The Faces of Hope display showcases the inspiring stories of Harbin Clinic patients who have undergone treatment at the Cancer Center. The special black and white photography collection by Kelly Moore effectively captures the character, spirit, and individuality of people who are living a rich and rewarding life after their cancer journey.
“The Faces of Hope photographs help empower and renew the spirits of current patients and their families who may be facing a tough road ahead,” said Dr. Melissa Dillmon, chairman of the Oncology Department at Harbin Clinic Tony E. Warren, MD Cancer Center. “It is always rewarding to see the smiling, healthy faces of former patients adorning the walls of the Cancer Center and know that we’re changing and saving lives each day.”
The Cancer Center’s annual holiday wreath silent auction features more than 55 original wreaths created by area artists, florists, garden clubs, businesses, interior designers, and creative individuals. They are available for public viewing and bidding at the Cancer Center during regular business hours (8 a.m.- 5 p.m. Monday through Friday).
“This festive event gets bigger and better each year, and the holiday display always brings so much joy to our patients and their families as it kicks off the holiday season,” said Janice Hopkins, Director of Operations at Harbin Clinic Cancer Center. “We’re humbled by how the community has embraced this project, and we look forward to another successful fundraising effort this year as we continue to support the vital work of Cancer Navigators.”
