It's a reunion unlike any other. 

Today, cancer patients, their families and their caregivers returned to Hope Lodge for an afternoon of celebration.

Hope Lodge is a home away from home, free of charge by the American Cancer Society, as part of their mission to eliminate the pain and suffering of cancer.

Today served as a reunion for those who have stayed at Hope Lodge. 

"Don't give up," says cancer survivor  Pamla Albarez. "The Lord is there for everyone. and you have places like the Hope Lodge and the cancer society that are just wonderful and there is hope. Let someone help you. Don't be afraid to ask for help. That's the main thing; don't try to do it by yourself."

More than 2,600 cancer patients and their caregivers have stayed at the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge. This was their 6th annual reunion.
