Olympic Gymnast Shannon Miller to Speak at SRMC Foundation Gala

SALEM, Ohio – Shannon Miller, an Olympic gymnast and ovarian cancer survivor, will be the featured speaker at the Salem Regional Medical Center Foundation’s 2024 Gala on Nov. 8 at Waypoint 4180 in Canfield.

In 1996, Miller led the “Magnificent Seven” to the U.S. women’s first Olympic team gold, and she became the first American gymnast to capture gold on the balance beam. She is the only female athlete to be inducted into the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame twice.

In January 2011, Miller was diagnosed with a rare form of ovarian cancer. She had a baseball-size tumor removed successfully. Miller has remained open and public about her diagnosis and treatment and continues to empower women to make their health a priority. She is currently cancer-free and continues to be an advocate for early detection, awareness, research and survivorship.

“Shannon Miller is truly an inspiration. We are honored to have such an influential speaker at this year’s foundation gala event,” said Amy Reed, SRMC Foundation director.
