Second Annual Ring That Bell

Fox Valley Hematology & Oncology partners with the American Cancer Society for second annual Ring That Bell

Community invited to celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day

On Wednesday, May 31, 2017 Fox Valley Hematology & Oncology (FVHO), northeastern Wisconsin’s cancer care specialists, is honoring the tradition of ringing bells to celebrate survivors of cancer with the second annual Ring That Bell event. FVHO, the American Cancer Society and partners across the nation will ring bells for one full minute to celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day at noon CST.

Members of the community are encouraged to join the celebration at the Appleton, Neenah, Waupaca, Shawano and Oshkosh FVHO locations starting at 11:45 a.m. that day, and at noon, people are invited to ring a bell wherever they are.

“So many of us have personally dealt with cancer or know someone who has,” Dr. Jack Swanson, physician at FVHO, said. “Ring That Bell shows our collective joy and love for those who have fought back against cancer and won the battle, honor those we have lost to cancer and hope for those who are fighting right now.”

Those participating in other locations are encouraged to photograph and share their pictures on social media to show support to patients and their families. The event is in advance of National Cancer Survivors Day, which falls on the first Sunday of June each year.

Ring That Bell was inspired by a time-honored tradition that takes place at cancer care facilities all over the country. The bells signify a turning point in the lives of cancer patients and represent the meaningful moment when their chemotherapy and radiation treatment ends. Individuals across the country are continuously ringing bells as they beat the battle against cancer in their own lives.
