Two local nonprofit organizations teamed up to bring some fun and relaxation to cancer patients and their families.
Georgia Cancer Support and Jay's Hope held a fishing rodeo, Saturday.
Families enjoyed a picnic while kids learned how to fish. There were other activities like face painting and a tractor ride.
"Their lives are consumed with doctor's appointments and chemo and treatment. This is just a time they can step away from the hospital atmosphere and do something fun," explained Cindy Gaskins, founder of Jay's Hope.
Georgia Cancer Support helped over 100 families since they started last year.
Danny White, founder of Georgia Cancer Support says, "It's amazing how many people we get to volunteer for all of these little projects that we go through, and try to raise money for different families and different groups."
Both organizations support families in central Georgia.
