More than 270 breast cancer survivors gathered Wednesday at Four Points Sheraton for a Celebration of Life survivors party hosted by Breast Cancer Awareness of the Cumberland Valley.
Members of the organization look forward to the annual party because it's one of the rare events the organization hosts that's purely a celebration, said Kathy McCann, board vice president.
"It's not about treatment. It's not about fundraising. It's about having fun," McCann said. "It's just nice to feel pretty and go out."
As survivors arrived, they received pink carnations donated by Kamelot Florist and tickets for door prizes. Inside the ballroom, they dined by candlelight at circular tables where many of the women seized the opportunity to catch up with friends they don't see often.
