BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) - Hope, faith and love. Three words one organization believes will help in the fight against breast cancer.
The Susan G. Komen Foundation held its annual Breast Cancer Survivor Luncheon at Louisiana Downs Wednesday.
People from all over the community gathered to celebrate survivors and take their chances on a silent auction. Three awards were also given out to individuals who have influenced breast cancer survivors in our community.
"We feel with faith, hope and love, that is how we make our journey through breast cancer and through treatment," said Kedgy Larson with the foundation.
This was the 10th annual breast cancer luncheon.
