People who have battled cancer are invited to two events this weekend to mark National Cancer Survivors Day, which is Sunday.
The American Cancer Society's Relay for Life, which includes candlelight ceremonies and overnight camp-outs, begins tomorrow at 6 p.m. and lasts 24 hours.
Survivors and community groups will form teams to walk or run relay-style at four locations -- Owings Mills High School, Bel Air High School, Severna Park High School and Howard Community College.
On Sunday, the Greater Baltimore Alliance for Cancer Survivorship will hold a reception from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the 5th Regiment Armory in Baltimore. Survivors, families and friends are welcome.
"This is really all about celebrating life," said Brian Devlin, chairman of the Alliance and a 10-year survivor of leukemia.
Relay information: 410-931-6850. Reception information: 410-368-2797.
