On the wings of its event success in 2015, Cancer Support Community North Texas (CSCNT) will host its “Thrive 2016” event on Tuesday, April 19 from 11:30 a.m.–1 p.m. The second annual event will honor three-time cancer survivor and long-time NBC5 anchor Deanna Dewberry and spotlight many others in the Greater Dallas community who are helping people survive and thrive with cancer.

Community leaders and long-time supporters of CSCNT, Janet Moll and Dave Ashworth, will co-chair the event, which aims to spotlight the positive impact of emotional and psycho-social support on cancer patients and their families. Dewberry will receive the “Community in Action” award honoring her relentless efforts in life and work to improve the quality of life of those impacted by cancer.

“Thrive is about showing what’s possible when you marry cancer support with cancer treatment—the impact is incredible,” says CSCNT CEO Mirchelle Louis. “It’s about treating the whole person and helping them not just survive cancer but thrive. Deanna is the epitome of someone who is thriving and helping us move the needle on the importance of cancer support for people in North Texas.”

“Thrive 2016” will take place Tuesday, April 19 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas. Tickets are $125 and can be purchased at
