Celebrating life

Nearly everywhere one looked Friday night at the Threshing Show Grounds in Almelund, there were people wearing purple shirts. These people — cancer survivors — had a simple, yet powerful phrase printed on those shirts: Living Proof. They are certainly proof that the battle with cancer can be won.

However, there are many who have lost that fight. The Relay For Life that night had a dual purpose: To celebrate those who have successfully fought cancer and to remember those whose lives it has claimed.
