This holiday season local Herndon and Reston Relay for Life organizers put up a Relay tree in the Ann B. Rodriguez Cancer Center at Reston Hospital.
At the Herndon Relay committee's December meeting members created hope and Relay-themed oranments for the tree. Relay participants were invited to create an ornament for the tree as well.
Patents who go to the Rodriguez Cancer Center for treatment have been encouraged to take an ornament home with them.
Herndon Relay Chair Sheila Grooms said while they put the tree together a patient came and took the first ornament home.
The tree will be on display through Jan. 2.
