"This is a picture of our great nieces and nephews along with grandchildren and one great-grandchild. We started the Candles for the Cure last year after the passing of husband, father, uncle, papa, and grandpa in June of 2017 and hope to continue this sad and happy tradition for years to come. Christmas was Dennis W Kennedy's favorite holiday. While he was not physically with us on this evening, he is forever in our minds and hearts. Hopefully, one year soon our candle picture will be entitled, Candles FOUND the Cure!"

- Judy Kennedy

This holiday season, we are asking everyone to take part in our online candlelight vigil by lighting a virtual candle in honor or memory of a loved one while making an enormous impact in the lives of others.
