Cancer survivors from across the Valley gathered in Warren Sunday for the 24th Annual Cancer Survivorship Day.

Trumbull Memorial Hospital sponsored the event, with help from the American Cancer Society and the Trumbull Memorial Health Foundation.

About 50 cancer survivors and their family members showed up at the Lincoln School to share their stories of survival and learn more about the latest cancer research and resources available to cancer patients.

The guest speaker was American Cancer Society researcher and Assistant Kent State Professor, Dr. Gary Koski.

“This event I’ve never been to before,” said cancer survivor Jodi Lehmann. “And I feel it’s essential for this area, because Trumbull County has one of the largest in the state of Ohio for breast cancer diagnosis.”

The event was free and open to the public.
