Lisa Black uses cancer journey to help others

June 13, 2012

Lisa Black’s reason for wanting to participate in this year’s Relay for Life is more personal than for many people. Lisa, who will be conducting the luminary ceremony, has a number of family members who’ve been affected with cancer. But she is also a survivor of cancer herself.

Although this is her first year partaking in Relay for Life, Lisa said she’d been interested before but was never around during the event.

The relay takes place 6 p.m. Friday to 6 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Saturday at Lokken Field.
