That was the hope of today's "Stories For a Cure". It was put on by relay for life.
The day is 12 hours of jam packed entertainment. Story tellers, magicians, and comedians all shared the stage, all to give cancer survivors a chance to laugh with their community.
"It's such a serious ordeal. It's good to come and be able to laugh. They like coming and sharing their stories. It's important for people who haven't had cancer, to hear those stories," said event chair Jill Rannebarger.
This was the first year for the event.
