Cancer Stories


When cancer hits, it doesn't just change the life of the patient - it changes the lives of family, friends, co-workers, neighbors. Here at the Cancer Institute of Greenville Health System, that life change has fueled a fire in clinical staff, patients, families and supporters to help build the future of cancer care through cancer research and survivorship programs. How? Through the annual Dragon Boat Upstate Festival. Click the video above to learn more about this unforgettable event, which has raised over $2 million (and counting!) for cancer patients and families.
