HNC Living Foundation – MASKS for AID: IMPACT

HNC Living Foundation’s MASKS for AID: IMPACT was held on April 26th at The Grand Hall at Power & Light. Guests enjoyed a moving rendition of “Rise Up” by vocalist Molly Hammer, complete with live performers who reenacted the stories of real patients who were provided assistance by HNC Foundation during their treatment and recovery. Founder Teresa Walsh and six HNC patients joined the performers on stage during the finale.
