Northside sponsors local Relay For Life events


Each year, Northside Hospital sponsors local American Cancer Society Relay For Life events. These programs rally supporters with a united vision of ending cancer.

The events raise funds and spirits in communities across the nation each spring and summer.

Northside Hospital Cancer Institute is a presenting sponsor for Relay For Life Gwinnett, which will be April 27 at Suwanee Town Center.

“I Relay for transportation because it helps our patients so much,” said Amy McEachin, oncology operations manager at Northside Hospital Gwinnett.

“I Relay because I want to bring cancer awareness to the community,” said Tranh N. Nguyen, community health advocate specialist at Northside Hospital Cancer Institute.

Northside Hospital is a sponsor of 12 different Relay locations throughout the service area. Relay provides a unique opportunity for celebration and remembrance for staff, patients and family members within their local communities.
