Cancer Center Gets Holiday Makeover

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash--  There are signs the holiday spirit is all around us.  A number of volunteers spent Saturday morning stringing lights and putting up christmas trees at the Tri-Cities Cancer Center. 

We met with one family that lost their son to cancer.  Now they come every year and help spread holiday cheer and give back thanks for the center's support.

"They took such wonderful care of our son and the people here were just so good to us," says Ed McLaughlin.  "We were so appreciative of it, that every year we've come back and we've helped not only in the cancer guild and the men's club, but also just decorating ourselves as well as the christmas trees and things for the other patients that come in, try to make it a wonderful experience when they come into the cancer center."

The family says it was heartbreaking to watch their son go through cancer, but they add spreading the holiday spirit is their way to give back to a family that is going through the same thing.
