Two weeks later he had a massive heart at- tack. He started his treat- ments for his cancer and heart. In November 2002 he received a good report that the cancer was responding to the treatments. Then in March 2003, he began to have a lot of pain and sick- ness. The radiation and chemo treatments began. The on- cologist told them he had an aggressive type of prostate canceiiand that we were just buying time. Debi saw the love of her life slowly losing the battle that he was fight- ing so hard to win. On No- vember 3, 2003, Bob lost his life to this horrible disease. The oncologist told her that her son and grandson would be a high risk for pros- tate cancer. So now she has a mission! She wants men to be aware of this silent killer be- fore it's too late for them and to help find a cure for her son and grandson, before they have to face this painful dis- ease. Relay For Life is a celebra- tion of hope, progress, and answers. It represents the hope that those lost to can- cer will never be forgotten, that those who still face can- cer will be supported, and that one day cancer will be eliminated. In this day and age, all of us are being touched in a very personal way by cancer. "Whether it's our loved ones, friends, or co-workers each of us has suffered losses from this disease. It is Debi's wish that ev- ery business, organization, and individual participate in this worthy cause. Just imag- ine what we could do if we all work together to find a cure! She invites anyone wish- ing to participate to attend the next Relay For Life's team captain's meeting on Monday, April 26, at 6 p.m. at Together We Care or you can contact Debi Puckett at 298-7842 or 298-7437 .
