(Honesdale, August 17, 2009)…Breast-cancer survivor Sylvia Bailey of Pleasant Mount has survived three bouts of cancer—two instances of breast cancer and one of colon cancer—but she doesn’t consider herself a “victim.” She’s a fighter: “When you’re handed lemons, you make lemonade,” she says brightly. Bailey is one of 10 breast-cancer survivors profiled by Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania for this year’s Gallery of Hope. All the survivors are from northeastern and north-central Pennsylvania. On display at Wayne Memorial Hospital, the exhibit promotes the importance of screenings and early detection in surviving the disease. To nominate a survivor for the Gallery of Hope, or to request the Gallery be displayed at your facility or event, please call 1-888-245-3104.

The display, at Wayne Memorial until August 26th, moves next to Pike County.
