Relay for Life Ascension set for Friday

Staff reports

The American Cancer Society Relay for Life Ascension is putting together a special presentation for the luminary ceremony at the Relay May 1 that will help to pay tribute to those who have been lost to cancer and celebrate the lives of those who have survived their battle. 

For the power point the committee need photos – pictures of cancer survivors and your loved ones who have lost their cancer battle. Photos you send in will be highlighted through this moving presentation along with many others. The name of the survivor and number of years of survival or the name of your loved one and the year they lost their battle will appear with photos.

If you are interested in having a photo of yourself or a loved one in this presentation, e-mail or call Chantelle Matherne at 225-413-0102.

Forms and photos are needed by April 29.

Persons interested in volunteering, forming teams, or donating for Relay For Life Ascension Parish May 1, can contact Matherne. The 25th annual celebration of Relay for Life will be at the Tanger Outlet Center in Gonzales.
