For those afflicted with cancer, a strong support system can make a world of difference.
Sunday, the Silver Hawks showed their support by letting cancer survivors in for free. It was all part of Michiana Cancer Survivors' Day.
Coveleski Stadium was painted pink from the players to Swoop, the mascot.
The event is part of the world's largest cancer survivors event, celebrated by 700 communities around the world.
Survivors say the event is a great way to support one another and celebrate life.
"It is great and we will do this again,” said one cancer survivor. "It's just been a good day. It's been a great day. My sons have been with us, my daughter-in-law, my grandson, and my son's girlfriend and it's just been a good day for all of us."
The Silver Hawks also hosted a picnic and for survivors and their families and a special ceremony before the game.
