“It was an honor to join with other cancer survivors and their loved ones to enjoy an evening of fun and celebration as a community,” said Thomas E. Cappiello, president of the Lung Cancer Research Council. “Each day is a gift in itself, and it was a special sight to see our community come together to share their stories and appreciate the lives we are blessed with.”
