Race for the Cure offers registration discount this weekend

Race for the Cure offers registration discount this weekend

It's been an annual tradition on the streets of Knoxville for more than a decade, and the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is hoping East Tennesseans will turn out once again this month to help those fighting breast cancer.

For years, this race has seen tremendous growth. In 2010, they hit a record 14,000 participants. Last year, they were down to 11,600. Organizers hope that drop doesn't continue this year.

Angels of Hope helps cancer patients

Angels of Hope helps cancer patients

Hundreds of East Tennessee cancer patients benefit from a volunteer effort to help them around the holidays.

"This says love is all you need," reads a hand made pillow case.

Love motivated UT Medical Oncologist Dr. Susan Huntsinger to start a program to help the cancer patients she treats.

"To be able to do this for them and give them just that little bit of spark that little bit of hope is just a wonderful thing," she said.

She realized the holidays can be especially difficult for her patients.
