A Rousing Bout of Laughter on Survivor’s Day

Survivor’s Day at the Trinitas Comprehensive Cancer Center was a little more jolly this year thanks to a visit from a special survivor and guest speaker who presented the benefits of Laughter Yoga to staff and patients and then led them through a rousing round of Laughter Yoga.
