Ellis Island Event Celebrates Life and Liberty After Cancer
Date:9/10/2009

HACKENSACK, N.J., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center, the nation's fourth largest cancer center, will bring together more than 1,000 cancer survivors to celebrate life, liberty and new beginnings at Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty - America's most recognizable symbol of freedom. This special event will take place on Sunday, Sept. 13 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

"Celebrating Life and Liberty" will serve as an important reminder that just like the 12 million immigrants who passed through Ellis Island on their way to a new life of liberty, today nearly 12 million Americans have survived a very different, but equally long and difficult journey -- cancer.

"After my own battle with cancer, I realized that there is life on the other end and you can come out whole. We want to celebrate that," said Sharon Lee Parker, who is celebrating six years of freedom from cancer and is a cancer coach, inspirational speaker and author of Look Out Cancer, Here I Come! How I Beat the Odds and Came Out a Winner. "Above all, patients need to learn how to come to terms with cancer in order to help defeat it. Once patients put on an 'emotional raincoat,' they can learn to fight back and come out a winner."

"Celebrating Life and Liberty" is an invitation-only event for John Theurer Cancer Center patients and their caregivers. The event includes several activities designed to celebrate a new beginning for those winning the fight against cancer, including a special performance by Le Cirque de la Liberte, tours of Ellis Island Museum and visits to the Statue of Liberty. Several former cancer patients will also provide musical entertainment at the event.

"Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty are the perfect locations for this celebration for obvious reasons," said Andre Goy, M.D., Deputy Director of the John Theurer
