Residents of Bartow’s Savannah Court Assisted Living Facility celebrated those who have survived cancer, including 98-year-old Luther Wilson, who has lived cancer-free for more than 60 years following his diagnosis and treatment for colon cancer. The residents were treated to cake, snacks and tokens, all in lavender, the color designated for survivors.
