Celebrate cancer survivors every month

Punkin Brookshire of Charlotte (center in lower photo) is a brain cancer survivor who was shocked to learn she also carries a genetic disease called Lynch syndrome.

Keesha Carter of Wingate (center photo) used her experience with cervical cancer and her background in theater and the arts to educate and empower other women.

Jane Taillon of Davidson (top photo) survived rectal cancer, but refused to let chemotherapy and surgery interfere with her bowling tournaments.

They're among 13 cancer survivors featured in the fourth annual "Stories of Survivorship" calendar published by Presbyterian Cancer Center and Presbyterian Buddy Kemp Cancer Support Center.

This year's subjects, also from Kannapolis, Concord, Huntersville, Mint Hill and Lake Wylie, were photographed by Charlotte photographer Kori Hoffman.
The calendars are free, but donations are accepted. Call 704-384-5223 or stop by Buddy Kemp at 242 Colonial Ave.
