Lighting up for Cancer


This has been a week of sweet surprises!

My friend, Betty Sparrow of West Point is the lead volunteer in our part of the world for The American Cancer Society’s Action Network.

Betty is selling luminaries and hand delivering them to Washington D.C. on Sept. 23 for the National Lights of Hope ceremony. The event will be held at the Lincoln Memorial on Sept. 25. Diane Raye of Eupora purchased a luminary in my name. So precious!

“I always handpaint a tribute to the honoree and since you are so dedicated to church and God, this seemed to fit,” Betty said. “I wanted you to see the luminary and know she honored you and your fight.”

All proceeds from bag sales go to cancer research.

Part of Betty’s duties as a volunteer for ACSCAN is to attend the ceremony each year. Betty will be doing a Facebook Live video from the event this year. We are not sure if it will be televised, but will let you know when we know.

Thank you Diane and Betty for “Lighting Up” a luminary for cancer research. HOW SWEET!
