US Gold Medalist Swimmer Eric Shanteau Helps Fellow Pittsburgh-Area Cancer Survivors Along ‘Healing Journey’

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

10th Annual West Penn Allegheny Oncology Network Celebration of Survivorship Takes Place November 2 in Cranberry
CRANBERRY TWP. - “Healing Journey,” West Penn Allegheny Oncology Network’s celebration of cancer survivorship, is now in its 10th year. This year’s event features keynote speaker Eric Shanteau, a USA Gold Medalist in swimming and cancer survivor and is set for Saturday, Nov. 2, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Four Points Sheraton North in Cranberry Township.
This free event offers fellowship and education to those who have fought or are fighting cancer. Attendees may bring a guest and complimentary breakfast, lunch and parking are provided.
Attendees will be entertained and inspired by Shanteau as he tells the story of his personal battle with cancer. Shanteau earned a gold medal as a member of the winning US team in the 4x100 meter medley relay at the 2012 Summer Olympics and also swam with the US relay team in the 2008 Olympics. He was diagnosed with testicular cancer just before he competed in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, and underwent surgery on his return to the US. He is now in remission and active in cancer awareness.
In addition to Shanteau’s talk, comedian and two-time cancer survivor Mack Dryden will perform, and artwork by cancer survivors, sponsored by Lily Oncology, will be on display.
Healing Journey is sponsored by West Penn Allegheny Oncology Network, a provider of community-based medical oncology and hematology services affiliated with the Allegheny Health Network.
