Gilda’s Club Evansville hosted it’s first ever Tri-State Cancer Survivor Day at the Eykamp Scout Center.
It’s a celebration of hope for all cancer survivors in the area along with their friends and families who support them.
Survivor Day also had a trail of hope where tiki torches were lined up to inspire others.
The torches included the cancer survivor’s first name, type of cancer, and year since diagnosis.
The celebration also had games and survivor themed activities.
Gilda’s Club says they plan to make the event annual.
