Martina McBride will join with other special musical guests to help salute and celebrate women cancer survivors at the famed Grand Ole Opry on August 24.

McBride and the Opry are joining with the Women Survivors Alliance and the National Women’s Survivors Convention to celebrate women survivors from across the country, and especially those attending the National Women’s Survivors Convention that same weekend at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville.

The Grand Ole Opry will recognize these women throughout the night. Olympic Gold Medalist and cancer survivor Scott Hamilton will serve as a guest announcer.

“We’re delighted to be a part of these survivors’ visits to Nashville,” said Opry Vice President and General Manager Pete Fisher. “We are going to have a lot of fun while also helping them take great steps toward creating awareness and a real movement about survivorship.”

“We are so grateful to Martina and our partners at the Grand Ole Opry for making this night so special,” said Karen Shayne, founder of the Women Survivors Alliance. “Women cancer survivors will be ready to celebrate as we wrap up our national convention and their collective efforts to create a national movement to help other women dealing with life after cancer.”
