This event is open to the public! Come join everyone for an evening of fun. Help to celebrate life and victory over this disease, remember those who have lost their battle to this disease at the Luminaria Ceremony while those who are still fighting their battle are honored and fight back by seeing what you can do so that one day no one will have to hear those three horrible words, ‘you have cancer’ again!
