The Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute will honor its 2013 Heroes of Breast Cancer on Tuesday at the Max M. Fisher Music Center from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
The event, which is invitation only, is held to honor individuals and organizations who, by example, have raised awareness of breast cancer prevention, early detection, treatment and survival.
The institute has been recognizing individuals and organizations for their efforts since 1995.
Local 4's Ashlee Baracy will be one of those honored at the event for her work that has communicated important messages about breast cancer, giving visibility to a compelling personal story of survivorship that inspires thousands to take action. Baracy will also serve as one of the emcees.
Music will be provided by students from the Detroit Symphony Civic Jazz Ensemble and Steve Acho, one of the honorees.
