Tinman has heart

Relay for Life: Cancer never sleeps

My stepfather was recently diagnosed with bladder and prostate cancer (some of you might remember that the doctors have been keeping a close eye on me due to high Prostate Specific Antigen [PSA] levels). Other friends and loved ones have also been touched by cancer, so this is a bit personal to me, this year.

The Noble County Relay For Life has its first sponsors for the 2012 season – but that’s just the beginning.

 This year’s annual American Cancer Society fundraiser will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 19, at its regular site: The West Noble High School track and football field, south of Ligonier along US 33.

 But the 2012 Relay kickoff comes on Thursday, February 9thth, from 6:30-8 p.m. at The Noble County Public Library’s Cole Meeting room, in the lower level of the library. This year’s Relay theme is Happy Birthday; let’s fight back and celebrate many more Birthdays to come. We will be recognizing any cancer survivor that comes, and signing up teams for our event.
