“We are so honored for the privilege to serve these heroes in our community,” said Darrell Cutts, president and CEO of Piedmont Fayette Hospital. “While we are happy to gather with everyone each year, we are looking forward to the day when surviving a journey with cancer will no longer be something unique for celebration.”
Delta Airlines provided a grand prize travel package and New Hope Baptist Church again partnered with the hospital to provide a wonderful venue for the event. One of the industry's leading breast cancer awareness advocates, comedienne Michelle Thomas entertained the group. Michelle's instant likeability and charm took the audience through topics from marriage and motherhood to cell phone and cellulite. Her clean and original approach to comedy was as relatable as it was hilarious, proving that “funny is funny,” regardless of age, race or life's journey. Guests were also invited to visit a cancer wellness expo with information available on women's imaging, nutrition, fitness, wellness programs and cancer research.
Piedmont Fayette Hospital first hosted the Fayette County Relay for Life Cancer Survivor's Dinner at Relay 2000. A small group of survivors and caregivers joined together for a dinner served for fellowship and support.
