Carrying the banner for the survivors walk at Friday night’s American Cancer Society Relay for Life, shown from left, were Donna Bass (three-year survivor), Gladys Martin (10 years), Diane Armstrong (14 years), Dorothy Griggs (52 days), Tammy Dyess (17 years) and Becky Morris (17 years). Collectively, the cancer survivors who introduced themselves in the opening ceremonies and walked the survivors’ lap had more than 592 years of life as a cancer survivor.
This year’s theme was “Once Upon a Cure!” The goal for this year’s event was $90,000 and they were at $77,000 going in to Friday night.
