Supporters Fighting for a Cure for Cancer with Light the Night
$item.subtitle


Angie Adams says her son's Wesley's fight and determination is why she and other supporters are rallying at Light the Night. She's hoping to one day have a cure for cancer. "I had been participating in the walk-light the night walk in Montgomery for the past 8 years but I thought Dothan was a good place to start a walk here and its been real successful." With her vision of starting Light the Night, Adams has drawn other parents to join her. "I watched my baby fight a fight that most people don't in a lifetime and I watched him fight the hardest battle I've ever seen anybody fight and I don't anyone else to have to lose their child or family member to this ever again." Alicia Hayes, son Cody Hayes of Ashford, lost his battle to Leukemia at 17-years-old last year. She says its all about a community effort and light the night is the the perfect start. "Even though he's not here, its still a very big part of our life now and we want a cure and this is a way to bring awareness to the Dothan area and other communities that we need to fight and find a cure." And despite the rain or any other factors, supporters are taking one step at a time to beating cancer.
