Edna Donovan, captain of the Iola Sisters Relay For Life team, picks up a penny when she sees it on the ground. Because you never know.
That penny might make a difference. It might be the last cent needed to fund research that will lead to a cure for cancer. It might be the last cent needed to pay for a stay at Hope Lodge, a facility offered by the American Cancer Society to house cancer patients and caregivers as they seek treatment.
Raising money for cancer research stays at the top of Donovans mind in just about everything she does. Cancer has ravaged her family and shes determined to help find a cure.
