“You have cancer”.
These three little words are ones no one wants to hear. For Lori Ewing, one of the three chairs for the Relay for Life of KC North, she volunteers her time so that no one would ever hear those words again. New for 2017 is a combined relay from three existing ones-- Liberty, Kearney, and Gladstone/Northland-- into the Relay For Life of KC North. This really encompasses a much larger area - Kearney, Excelsior Springs, Liberty, Smithville, Gladstone, Parkville, Platte City and North Kansas City. The event will take place Friday, June 23rd at the South Valley Middle School track.
