MERRILLVILLE | Thanks to the generous donation to the Methodist Hospitals Foundation from Mark McDaniel, a 12-year cancer survivor treated at Methodist Hospitals, an inspirational holiday celebration was held last month for cancer patients and survivors. Themed “Peace, Love, Joy & Music,” the event at Methodist Hospitals’ Southlake Campus included gifts for the guests, a visit from Santa Claus, entertainment by acoustic guitarist Vincent Adams, Christmas carols performed by Grimmer Middle School eighth grade choir,  and hors d’ oeuvres and refreshments. McDaniel, whose family used proceeds from a summer music festival held at their Schererville home to fund the party, shared his survival story with his guests.
