Supporters Fighting for a Cure for Cancer with Light the Night
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.
