A Day Off from Cancer

More than 100 cancer patients and survivors, along with their families, celebrated life at the Cancer Survivors’ Celebration at the Binghamton Zoo on August 24. The event was planned as a relaxing afternoon for families — including children and grandchildren of patients — to enjoy time away from cancer treatment and included a band, a balloon-animal maker, a magician and a barbecue lunch. Admission to the zoo was included in the free event.
