Help us decorate our "Wall of Heroes" by bringing or e-mailing photos of loved ones-whether they are patients, survivors, special care givers, a doctor, nurse, or someone you love who has lost their battle to cancer. Photos will be displayed on the wall near the concession stand during the walk to honor the many that have been on this journey. Photos can be taken after the picnic.
