“We are honored to have Mark DeCarlo join us for this special night and to bring this opportunity for people to participate in one of our events from the comfort of their home or wherever they might be. Cancer Support Community has continued to offer new and innovative support during this time. Since the onset of the pandemic, we have offered more than 740 virtual support programs and welcomed nearly 90 newly diagnosed individuals and family members on the new virtual platform. The funds raised at this event will help us to sustain and grow these programs so that no one faces cancer alone.”
