SOMERVILLE, NJ, June 28, 2012 -- Somerset Medical Center’s Steeplechase Cancer Center recently held two events to celebrate cancer survivors.

The cancer center also hosted about 100 cancer survivors and guests in a special hospitality tent at Music at Moorland on June 21 in Far Hills. Survivors enjoyed a buffet dinner followed by a performance by the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra and fireworks by Grucci. 

The Steeplechase Cancer Center offers an array of programs and services year round to help address cancer survivors’ unique needs, including an oncology rehabilitation program, nutritional counseling, support groups and complementary medicine programs.
