We would like to send out a huge thank you to some in Lawrence County for committing to be a 2015 Relay For Life of Lawrence County Sponsor! Cancer touches too many of our loved ones. In fact, more than 1.6 million people in the United States were expected to be diagnosed with cancer in 2014 alone. It is a staggering statistic. But thanks to you, there is hope.

I remember as a lad putting up hay for farmers in Southern Indiana. The hot weather made for uncomfortable situations when added with wasps in the barn loft, hay debris on the skin and in the eyes, and long days in the open fields under a glaring summer sun.

Too much sun can be no fun. Too much sun literally fries your skin and then you're done!
