We're honored to help make a difference in the lives of cancer victims and their families
Rocky Mount, NC (PRWEB) April 20, 2009
On Friday, April 24, the members of local law firm HensonFuerst will take part in the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life of Nash County, where they will join others to celebrate survivorship, remember those who lost their lives to cancer, and raise funds to fight the disease.
During this year's event, the members of HensonFuerst will again present the South Atlantic Division of the American Cancer Society with the proceeds from Hope Blooms, the firm's community-based garden program that promotes awareness regarding cancer research as well as aids in the fight to eradicate cancer.
"We're honored to help make a difference in the lives of cancer victims and their families," said attorney David Henson of HensonFuerst. "It is our sincerest hope that as a community we can work together to eliminate this disease for future generations."
Hope Blooms invites community members to make $10 donations in exchange for daffodil pots that are planted in memory or honor of individuals who have been affected by cancer. This year, the
firm raised $6,600 and planted 660 daffodil bulbs. The firm has raised more than $24,000 since starting the Hope Blooms program in 2006.
