The Magic of Life Foundation (MOLF) and Georgia Cancer Specialists (GCS)—the largest private oncology/hematology practice in the Southeast—hosted the 16th Annual Magic of Life Celebration for Cancer Survivors (MOL) Sunday, October 8, at Stone Mountain Park. More than 2,100 survivors, family, and friends came out to celebrate their survivorship, making this year’s MOL the biggest ever.
As the largest cancer survivor event in the South, MOL gives survivors a chance to join together and celebrate their achievements and successes in the fight against the disease.
“This event grows in importance every year as the number of people living with cancer increases,” said GCS President and CEO Dr. Bruce Feinberg. “Such an accomplishment is worth celebrating.”
Dr. Wendy Hawke, COO of GCS and Executive Director/Chair of MOLF, said one would be hard-pressed to find an event like this anywhere else.
“This celebration is like no other,” Dr. Hawke said. “The inspiration, ambition, and positivity that fills the air is unbelievable.”
MOL is a picnic-style event and includes access to all of the park’s activities. Survivors and one guest receive a free pass for lunch, entrance to the park, and access to park activities. Survivors also receive a free T-shirt.
Two new additions this year were the “Dunk-A-Doc” tank and the upgraded “Marketplace,” where attendees could purchase additional MOL t-shirts, “Alive and Thriving” bracelets, and “Breast Cancer Answers,” Dr. Feinberg’s first book in the Cancer Answer series.
Proceeds from all sales go to the Magic of Life Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports cancer patients throughout Georgia.
GCS—the title sponsor of MOL—is the largest private oncology/hematology practice in the Southeast and a leader in advanced cancer treatment and research.
