Lewis County Relay for Life organization celebrates 20 years of hosting Cancer Survivor dinner

Lewis

The Lewis County Relay for Life organization is celebrating 20 years of holding its annual Cancer Survivor dinner.

This dinner was free to the public and was provided by the Broad Street United Methodist church.

Relay For Life survivor chair, Charla Barrett, said this event was all about honoring those who have won the fight against cancer, and along with the dinner there were also encouraging speeches and poems from various survivors.  

“We want more survivors, we want less people to die from cancer, we want to raise money so we have earlier detection and treatment, so it is very important that we honor them and celebrate their survival,” said Barrett.

The Lewis County Relay for Life organization will be holding a fundraiser this coming weekend on Mothers day to honor mother’s who have survived or fighting cancer.
