For the past 15 years, Spirit of Survival has been an integral part of the Lawton community, bringing visitors from around the country who participate in support of the fight against cancer. This event has been very near to our hearts since its beginning as it is a beacon of hope for those who have battled, continue to battle, or have lost a loved one to cancer. It is with a heavy heart that we announce that Spirit of Survival 2022 will not be taking place.

Since the beginning of Covid, our resources have been diminished. Like many other businesses, we have had to cope with changes in personnel. This year, as we are still recovering from the lasting effects of Covid, we have focused all of our efforts and resources on the care of the patients at Cancer Centers of Southwest Oklahoma and we are unable to give Spirit of Survival the attention that it needs in order to be a successful event.

As we move forward, the SOS team would like to express our gratitude to all of the past participants of Spirit of Survival. It is because of your support that we have been able to make great strides in the treatment of cancer patients across Southwest Oklahoma.

We understand that Spirit of Survival has become a tradition for our community and we continue to pray for its legacy to continue on in the coming years.
