Lowell General Hospital will honor local survivors and families touched by cancer to mark the Cancer Center’s 20th anniversary from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 22, in the center’s parking lot at the hospital’s main campus at 295 Varnum Ave.

When Lowell General Hospital first opened the Cancer Center in 1998, it was one of the first of its kind in New England – a multidisciplinary cancer center practicing the patient-centered care model of Boston tertiary hospitals in a community setting. Today, the Cancer Center remains a pioneer in community cancer care, with countless cancer survivors across Greater Lowell serving as testament to the value of cutting-edge, patient-centered care close to home.

Saturday’s event is open to the public and will include live music, refreshments, raffles and activities for the entire family.
