Staff from Friends Together and volunteers will be serving up more than just support for cancer patients Tuesday.

The non-profit group and others will be serving meals at Alpena’s Big Boy restaurant, between 5 and 8 p.m., as part of a fundraiser.

All tips received during the three-hour period will go toward programming, including the Friends Together transportation and lodging program which helps families with the hidden cost of cancer treatment.

Friends Together currently holds 30 support groups each month, on average.  These groups provide comfort, solidarity, and information in a confidential setting for residents of northeast Michigan who are diagnosed with cancer.
