An annual picnic is reuniting cancer survivors with
the people that helped them along the way.
More than 100 patients and their famlies took part
in the 23rd annual Celebrate Life Picnic.
The community-wide picnic at the La Crosse Center
gives survivors a chance to meet other survivors and
the doctors that treated them.
Often times cancer doesn't just affect the patient.
it affects their families as well...
And many times its the comfort of knowning their not
alone which keeps them moving forward.
People might not know that other people have had the
same journey and had to support other families member
through their cancer care and again tell their story.
The picnic was put on by both Gundersen Health system
and Mayo clinic heath system Fransiscan Healthcare.
