The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life of Bureau County was held Friday. We asked some participants: Do you think that there will ever be a cure for cancer?

“Yes, I’m hoping there will be a cure for cancer. Hopefully they’ll be able to isolate the cell in which the cancer starts.”

Janet Hueneburg, Spring Valley

“I’m hoping there will be a cure for cancer soon. There are so many different kinds of cancer, but I’m sure they’ll find a cure.”

Ed Zeglis, Spring Valley

“I think so. They are making great progress!”

Joyce Czyzewski, Darion

“Yes, I definitely do. With all the money raised and technology, we should be able to find a cure.”

Lorrie Bennett, Spring Valley

“I hope so but maybe not in my lifetime.”

Jess Galetti, Ladd
