Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - June is Cancer Awareness month, and a celebration was held on Thursday for people fighting cancer.

Last year Duluth Superior Magazine launched Beauty and Soul campaign.

Each month the Magazine did a segment featuring a person who is fighting cancer.

Thursday was a chance for all the people featured in the magazine to meet one another and support each other.

The magazine along with other sponsors gave each person a day of complete pampering to help them escape from the terrible disease.

"I had a day of pampering last spring, and my husband and I had dinner out, I got to go to a spa for a day and get spoiled, we just got to enjoy the night. I was in a limo for the whole day, it was just a wonderful day I will never forget," said Sandy Henderson.

Henderson is a breast cancer survivor and was lucky enough to catch the disease early on.
