“The Faces of Cancer,” a special photo exhibit, was unveiled at a cancer survivor celebration, “Hope Soars … Celebrating Life” June 28 at My Old Kentucky Home State Park. The exhibit features survivors from LaRue, Breckinridge, Grayson, Hardin, Marion, Meade, Nelson and Washington counties. Two Hodgenville residents, Sue Young and Ramona Coffey, are survivors portrayed on the exhibit. The exhibit, donated by Lakeview Photography in Bardstown, will travel the eight-county region, stopping first at Flaget Memorial Hospital.

Special music was provided by Joyful Noise. Cindy Ethington, a cancer survivor, shared her survivor story, complete with her breast cancer survivor kit, which included her pink My Little Pony.

Upon completion of the ceremony, survivors and guests proceeded outside and released balloons with messages in honor or memory of individuals.
