Stories of Survivorship Calendar

Joshua Stein has survived testicular cancer since 2008.

Carol Solomon has survived colon cancer since 2004.

Morris Nicholson has survived prostate cancer since 2002.

They are among the 12 cancer survivors pictured in the 2011 calendar published by Presbyterian Buddy Kemp Cancer Support Center.

The idea for the calendar started several years ago with Tiffany Young, a clinical social worker at Buddy Kemp, where survivors gather regularly. Others at Presbyterian ran with her suggestion, and they now ask cancer center employees every year to nominate patients whose personal stories have touched them. The project has become extremely popular with hospital staff, who nominated about 80 survivors this year.

The result is a "Stories of Survivorship" calendar with striking photographs by Kori Hoffman - mostly black and white with touches of pink, orange, red, green and blue - of smiling survivors.

To obtain a free calendar, call Buddy Kemp Cancer Support Center, 704-384-5223, or pick one up at 242 Colonial Ave., Charlotte. (www.presbyterian.org/buddykemp)

Donations are accepted to provide emergency assistance to cancer survivors through the Hand-in-Hand Fund.

Really interesting Blog. Indian hospitals like Apollo are providing a nice blend of top-class medical expertise at affordable prices and thus are attracting foreign patients.
