Cancer survivors share stories
A downpour of rain did not dampen the spirits of hundreds who came out to Lincoln Parish Relay for Life last Friday evening.
The annual American Cancer Society fundraiser, initially planned at the Ruston High School track, was moved inside the gym of Ruston Junior High.
Inside the building, various groups sold snacks and sweets to raise money, and some made the trek around the gym while others socialized or talked about their experiences with cancer.
Retired Louisiana Tech Dean of Student Services Maribel McKinney was among more than 20 cancer survivors present at the event.
