Bridal Shower Fundraiser Offers Attendees Chance to Take Home the Gifts

When the question arose as to whether she wanted to benefit others through a joyous occasion in her life, bride-to-be Lisa Johnson’s response was brief and immediate.

“I do.”

The cancer survivor and Town of Tonawanda resident is celebrating her 10-year anniversary of being cancer-free and her upcoming nuptials by replacing her traditional bridal shower with a fundraiser for Roswell Park Cancer Institute. She also hopes the event will raise awareness about lymphedema, a chronic swelling that sometimes develops after cancer treatments.
