While the May 19-20 Noble County Relay For Life can be a fun activity for participants, they never lose site of the real reason for this American Cancer Society event: fighting cancer.
That’s why the Relay’s March 14 Team Captain meeting came with a reminder that March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, a time to remember that colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of the disease in males, and the fourth leading cause in…Continue

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), 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.
