"The word 'cancer' is one that invokes fear in the heart of every person here today," said Intergraph Chairman, President and CEO Halsey Wise, who introduced the honorees at the dedication. "However, today's show of unity at the Garden of Hope proves that we can stand together, fight back and celebrate life in the face of this terrible disease."
