On June 17, associates from Life Care Center of LaGrange, Indiana, served breakfast to cancer survivors and their families, in conjunction with the LaGrange County Relay For Life.


The facility’s Relay team, Life Care for a Cure, fixed a breakfast of fresh fruit, pastries and doughnuts, oatmeal and breakfast sandwiches. The event was hosted at Lakeland High School, and approximately 65 survivors and their families came to enjoy the free meal before participating in the Relay.


Among the survivors was Betty Holmes, a cook at Life Care Center of LaGrange.


“She has been battling cancer for the past year, requiring chemo, radiation, surgery and specialized treatments in Chicago,” said Susan Wilson, payroll clerk and Holmes’ daughter. “This was a special day for us to spend with her.”


Following breakfast, Sara Bires, business office manager, represented Life Care at Relay.


“Sara is our team captain and has been for years,” said Michelle Watson, director of rehab. “She attends planning meetings for Relay throughout the year and makes sure we stay involved in this great cause!”


The facility has had a Relay For Life team since 2007.
