Hosts Frank and Lynn Flanagan

Carmel Valley resident Lynn Flanagan’s breast cancer support group held its annual holiday party Dec. 15 at Flanagan’s home. Rather than hold a gift exchange for themselves, this group of breast cancer survivors each brought a sleeping bag to donate to Father Joe’s Villages for the homeless. A total of 25 sleeping bags were donated. The members believe that “the best cure for one’s own issues is to focus on the needs of others.” Breast surgeon Dr. Michele Carpenter and Scripps Clinic oncologist Dr. Michael Kosty also attended the event.
