“Faces of Cancer,” a special photo exhibit, was unveiled at a cancer survivor celebration, “Hope Soars ... Celebrating Life” at My Old Kentucky Home State Park.

This is the final full day of the exhibits stay at the Lincoln Museum before it moves to Hardin Memorial Hospital. 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.

Cancer resources from the Kentucky Cancer Program also will be available free to the public. 

Suzanne Gude, cancer control specialist for the Lincoln Trail District, said the “goals of the exhibit are to show that vibrant life after a cancer diagnosis can be a reality and to provide an opportunity for family, friends, neighbors and colleagues to share the courage and inspiration of these survivors.”

The exhibit was donated by Lakeview Photography in Bardstown and sponsored by the Kentucky Cancer Program.
