Celebrating with American Cancer Society
Teams at this year's Relay for Life in Woodward had a party.
A birthday party that is, as they celebrated the 100th anniversary of the American Cancer Society (ACS). They also celebrated how ACS seeks to help all cancer patients celebrate more birthdays.
So during Friday night's Relay birthday party, the guests of honor were, as they are every year, the many local cancer survivors.
The News visited with just a few of these brave battlers who shared stories about their individual journeys to overcome cancer.
