During the Relay For Life of Spencer County, the American Cancer Society will hold a luminaria ceremony to honor, remember and celebrate the lives that have been touched by cancer. Luminaria will be lit at Spencer County High School on June 8 at 10 p.m. to represent these individuals
Anyone who would like to make a luminaria donation may do so by contacting Joy Thompson at 502-643-1573 or by visiting relayforlife.org/spencer. Each luminaria candle is $5.
The luminaria ceremony provides an opportunity to reminisce and celebrate not only the lives of these extraordinary individuals but also their strength and courage. This touching ceremony highlights the importance of defeating this disease and striving toward a world with less cancer and more birthdays
“Each luminaria represents the life of someone who has battled cancer,” Thompson, the volunteer event chair, said. “It is a beautiful sight when all the bags with candles are illuminated around the track. The luminaria ceremony is a moving way toremember loved ones lost to cancer and to pay tribute to cancer survivors.”
