Cancer is a thief as it steals lives from all ages, careers and socio-economic levels. In other words, it affects the lives of so many, all around us. Recently a 39-year old friend lost her battle to breast cancer leaving three daughters without a parent. It is not too late to contribute to this Fruita event. Contact Suzie Potratz at 623 3913.
