Cancer Survivors Recognized at Camden Yards

The Baltimore Orioles will recognize the courage and strength of those living with cancer in an Evening of Hope pregame ceremony before the Orioles take on the Florida Marlins.

James Brooks, a multiple myeloma patient in remission, was treated at the LifeBridge Health's Alvin & Lois Lapidus Cancer Institute and will be honored in the ceremony. Other cancer patients from local area hospitals will also be recognized by the Orioles.

Stephen Noga, M.D., the director of oncology/hematology at the Alvin & Lois Lapidus Cancer Institute, submitted a letter to the Orioles that included information about the James’ diagnosis and his successful treatment. As part of the recognition, the Orioles provided LifeBridge Health with 100 Left Field Club Level tickets in the “All You Can Eat" section for cancer patients and their guests for the game. The official ceremony is from 6:45-7:00 p.m. and the game begins at 7:05 p.m.

We're thankful to the Orioles for honoring cancer patients, and wish them the best in tonight's game!
