INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Reba McEntire is coming to town!

She'll be performing at The Giving Gig, a fundraiser put on each year by the Community Health Network Foundation in support of the Oncology Patient Assistance Fund. Last year's event raised $1.7 million.

This year's event, "Cancer's Last Rodeo," is already sold-out, but there are still ways you can help cancer patients in central Indiana. Call (317) 355-GIVE or click here for more information.

Joyce Irwin, Community Health Network Foundation president and CEO, and Ashley Herndobler, a UIndy student and cancer survivor, joined us on Eyewitness News at Noon Wednesday to discuss the event and what it means to cancer patients and survivors.
