Tears of all types were shed Saturday. Cancer survivors, family, friends and coworkers gathered for the annual Relay for Life of Whiteside County at Westwood Fitness and Sports Center in Sterling. The event is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society and is a time to reflect on the ongoing fight against cancer. Luminaria are lit to remember those that have passed and to celebrate the survivors. Visit shawurl.com/3bck for more information about Relay for Life or to make last minute donations.
