HOUSTON (June 5, 2019) – St. Joseph Medical Center (SJMC) is honoring cancer survivors this month with celebration events for former cancer patients who were treated at its freestanding cancer centers.
“We are so proud to honor our former cancer patients in recognition of Cancer Survivors Day in June,” said Radiation Oncologist Sanjay C. Mehta, M.D. “We enjoy catching up with our patients to see how they are doing since their successful treatments. They become an extended family because we spent much time together helping them beat a cancer diagnosis – and that creates a lifetime bond between us all.”
St. Joseph Cancer Center in West Houston will host the celebration Saturday, June 15, from 2-4 p.m. Register to attend at sjmccancercenter.eventbrite.com or by calling 713-343-6750.
