Greenville Hosts Annual Cancer Survivor's Day

A local cancer center is bringing together cancer survivors and their supporters to celebrate life Thursday.

The Leo W. Jenkins Cancer Center in Greenville is hosting its annual Survivor's Day in Uptown Greenville.

Survivor's Day is an event for those who want to celebrate cancer survival, whether or not they have the disease.

Attendees will have the chance to meet-and-greet members of the ECU Basketball Team and spend time with therapy dogs, including Elle the Pit Bull, the winner of the 2013 Hero Dog Award. Additional therapy dogs will also be present.

Other activities at the event include live music, a dunking booth and face painting.

Attendees can also take a walk through the Strollin' Collin, an oversized model of the colon, to learn more about its different parts and functions.

The celebration will be from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday at Five Points Plaza in Uptown Greenville.
