All cancer survivors and their caregivers are invited to join a celebration of life on Saturday, June 6, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Community United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall at 434 Lewis St. Refreshments will be served.

This will be a great opportunity for survivors and their caregivers to meet other cancer survivors who have had the same experiences, and to become a part of the largest cancer support group in the world. Always remember, the courage and strength of the survivors is what gives Relay for Life its spirit and drives its supporters year after year.

Survivors will have an opportunity to serve as an inspiration to those newly diagnosed with the disease, provide them with the strength to keep fighting and show them that our community is there to support them.
