FVHO Ring That Bell
A key program for the FVHO Fight Back Foundation is the “FVHO Ring That Bell” annual event. As patients complete their chemotherapy or radiation treatments, they are encouraged to ring a bell in celebration. Each year on the Wednesday before the National Cancer Survivor Day (first Sunday in June), the FVHO Fight Back Foundation hosts a memorable program, and an invitation for everyone to ring a bell at noon to honor anyone going through cancer or in memory of a loved one.
