25th Silver Anniversary Cancer Survivors Day Luncheon Recap | Houston

We are pleased to share that our 25th Silver Anniversary Cancer Survivors Day Luncheon was a sold out event! More than 550 guests were in attendance to celebrate cancer survivors and their caregivers, as well as remember those who fought courageously.


A tremendous thank you to our Luncheon Co-Chairs, Kay and George A. Kurisky, Jr. for their amazing commitment to our mission. We had a beautiful program thanks to our incredible Keynote Speaker, Frank Billingsley, Mistress of Ceremonies, Dominique Sachse, Volunteer Speakers, Jennifer and Lloyd RachalMayor Sylvester TurnerRev.

We look forward to seeing you next year on
