Heroes for Hope honors cancers survivors and their caregivers

Harrison

Survivors and their caregivers were celebrated at the 6th annual Heroes for Hope Event.

Sponsored by Humana Inc., the event builds a community of support for those struggling with the disease.

Survivors ranging from 10 years to 1 week gave their experiences and advice for others.

The event also provided information for guests to navigate medical care, treatment, and life style options.

“Families and the community give to these patients, their outcome would not be as successful. So I think it’s important to provide them with recognition so they continue to provide the support the patients need,” said  Dr. Craig Coonley, a guest speaker at the event.
