Cancer Survivors Sought for "Life is a Celebration" Horse

James P. Wilmot Cancer Center Participates in Horses on Parade

January 10, 2001

The James P. Wilmot Cancer Center at the University of Rochester seeks cancer survivors to "sign" the "Life is a Celebration" Horse, a part of the Horses on Parade program.

The "Life is a Celebration" Horse is a tribute to all cancer survivors and a symbol of hope for anyone currently undergoing treatment. Artist Lisa Lange is creating a kaleidoscopic horse that incorporates the signatures of cancer survivors along with colorful shapes to illustrate the celebration of life. The horse will be displayed at various locations around Rochester from May through September.

Cancer survivors from throughout Western New York are encouraged to participate by signing colorful slips of paper that will be affixed to the horse. Participation costs just $5 and proceeds will help support innovative cancer research at the University of Rochester. The deadline for signatures is Jan. 29.

Cancer Center volunteers will also accept signatures from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Sunday, Jan. 14, at EastView Mall Center Court.

For more information, please contact Susan Scholl at the Cancer Center, (716) 273-4143.
