Cara and Chey's special day

On March 5th 2011 Cara Hogan and Chey Fisher were married amongst 110 of their family and friends. As part of their special day they chose to support cancer research.

At just 15, Cara was diagnosed with cancer, and after 14 months of treatment she was in remission from the Ewing Sarcoma she had battled. To this day she remains cancer free but cancer research will always be a cause close to her heart.

In planning their wedding both Cara and Chey “felt guilty” about the amount of money being spent on one day and wanted to find a way to give back. Their personal connection to cancer and the fact that every dollar of every donation goes to cancer research led them to donate to cancer research in place of gifts for their guests. Both Cara and Chey preferred to offer guests something meaningful rather than chocolates or ornaments that may not be used.

During their big day many guests commented on what a great idea they thought it was & wore ACRF awareness ribbons throughout the night.

The foundation would like to congratulate Cara & Chey on their beautiful wedding & thank them for their thoughtfulness and generosity and for inspiring others to support cancer research as well!
