Vowing to “Finish The Fight,” cancer survivors, their families and friends came to Corbin High School Friday evening for Corbin’s annual “Relay For Life” event.
The 12-hour marathon of dedication, remembrance, being together as one, and raising money in the battle against cancer began at 7 p.m., when cancer survivors walked the “Survivors’ Lap” on the track at the Corbin High practice football field.
Two survivors and a special person in each other’s lives — from left to right, Nancy Harrison, Amanda Lawson and Martha Shaw — cross the finish line at Friday’s “Relay For Life.”
All three are from Corbin. Harrison has survived cancer for seven years and “is still fighting,” while Shaw has survived cancer twice. Lawson is Harrison’s daughter and caregiver. Her mother said of Lawson, “I don’t know what I’d do without her.”
