(KWWL) -

St. Luke's Hospital in Cedar Rapids hosted a Cancer Survivors Day event this afternoon at Guthridge Park in Hiawatha.

Survivors and their families came together to enjoy food and live music.

One survivor told us she beat cancer once, and plans to do it again.

"I have lung cancer, and it's been 7 years I've been good, now I have a new tumor but we are going to figure that out and go on," said Cathy Troll.

This was the second year for the event, but organizers plan to continue it every year.

Mercy Hospital in Cedar Rapids also hosted a Cancer Survivors Day event today.
