Start Date


Port Huron, Mi...The long road toward survival starts in childhood - a time when individuals build remarkable endurance, capacity for patience, and drive to overcome any obstacles that stand in their way. To celebrate this level of remarkable commitment, St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron, and its Mercy Regional Cancer Center, is hosting a Survivor Tea in conjunction with the American Cancer Society Relay for Life.

All community members who have faced a cancer diagnosis, or are loving friends or family members of someone who has battled cancer, are invited to have that endurance, patience and love acknowledged and honored at this special event. The Survivor Tea will be held from 8 to 9:30 p.m., Saturday, May 21, at the Relay for Life Center Tent, just prior to the annual luminary event. The Survivor Tea will feature free refreshments and inspiring stories from the heart. To register for the Survivor Tea, please call 1-888-637-2963.
