Gathering planned for cancer survivors

A Cancer Survivor Open House will be held Sunday, March 18 from 2-4 p.m. at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Wadena.

Janice Aagard, treasurer of the Wadena County Relay for Life committee, said this is the first open house and they hope to hold it every year.

"We just decided last fall that we would like to try it," she said.

The open house honors cancer survivors, their guests and their caregivers.

"Recognition that they have survived, I think, is the main thing," Aagard said.

Wadena County Relay for Life holds its big event in the summer alternating different locations. Aagard got involved with Relay for Life because she is a cancer survivor herself.

Desserts and beverages will be served at the church fellowship hall.
