Celebration

Tri-County Cancer Coalition’s 7th Annual Cancer Survivor Dinner was held Thursday at the Corbin Arena.

CORBIN — "And the 2013 Brenda McKeehan Celebration of Life Award goes to… Jennifer Hungerbuhler.” With that announcement made by Rhonda Arena, Hungerbuhler proudly went onstage to receive her award at the Tri-County Cancer Coalition’s 7th Annual Cancer Survivor Dinner held Thursday at the Corbin Arena. Hungerbuhler, who works at Women’s Health Associates inside Baptist Health Corbin hospital, is a cancer survivor and was profiled last October in the Times-Tribune’s “The Power of Pink” series, which spotlighted breast cancer survivors in the Tri-County.

Eight “Mission of Hope Advocacy Awards” were given out at the event. One went to Michelle and Larry Lanham, which Larry accepted on behalf of his wife Michelle, who died of cancer in June of this year. The other awards went to Dr. Frank Domurat, Victor Herren, Kelli Paul, Melissa Pratt, Dr. William Pratt, June Rawlings and Martha Shaw.

In addition, 25 Tri-County area students won awards from a writing contest that was held by the Tri-County Cancer Coalition for writing poems, pictures and stories about how they saw cancer in their lives, as it related to their family members, friends, their experiences and how it’s affected them.

Nashville singer and entertainer Cindy Moore, who impersonates Minnie Pearl, couldn’t make it to the dinner due to the two-time cancer survivor being with her ailing father in Cindy’s hometown of Atlanta. Waiting in the wings to entertain at the Cancer Survivor Dinner was another Nashville legend, Johnny Cash, as portrayed by Cindy’s husband, Randy Moore. Being the trouper he is, Randy — uh, Johnny — pinch hit and wowed the crowd, with a charming personality and famous Cash tunes like “Folsom Prison Blues” and “Daddy Sang Bass.”
