Attention Artists!

San Pedro Cancer Society Lights the Night

It's amazing what a group of like-minded individuals can organize. The San Pedro Cancer Society, under the helm of President Monica Prevette, Treasurer Miguel Perez and a few active and enthusiastic members, held a Light The Night walk in honor of World Cancer Awareness Day on Friday, February 4th.
There was an amazing turnout, including visitors and residents who showed up in solidarity of friends, family members and victims the world over who are suffering from the disease, have triumphed over it, or sadly, lost the battle against cancer.
Children joined adults and marched through the designated route after a small prayer.
Edwin is a cancer survivor, and he marched proudly with his family.
The town of San Pedro lost a dearly beloved member, Miss Kim Reyes to Kidney cancer in late 2010, and her family walked in memory of her.

Mr. Ramirez also walked in memory of a loved one...
Whatever the reason people joined the walk, there was definitely an air of solidarity.
After the walk, a moment of silence was held in memory of those who've lost the battle against cancer. "Supporting the fighters, admiring the survivors, honoring the taken, and never EVER giving up. Where strangers become friends...battling cancer...side by side."
