July marks an exciting milestone for Marshall Cancer Care Center. The premier treatment center for cancer patients turns five years old today, and the community is invited to help celebrate.

When it opened its doors for an open house in 2013, more than 800 people showed up to tour the new building devoted to cancer care. The following week, patients started coming for treatment.

In its first year, the Cancer Center treated 1,013 patients. During the past 12 months, that number has doubled.
