Please help the Drovers Against Cancer to win a special award by signing up for a Luminaria for the Relay For Life this year. Lets fill the oval with the light of bags representing survivors, care givers and those that are especially active in the fight against cancer. Of course there are also the bags to commemorate those that have lost their battle with cancer. This year the American Cancer Society has set the price at $10 a piece. We also have the tiki torches that start at $25 for the first year and then drop each year by $5 until it reaches $10.
