Marty Willenbring was diagnosed with colon cancer more than 20 years ago. He survived another bout and then two occurrences of urinary and kidney cancer. He wanted to claim his purple T-shirt and participate in the survivors' walk at the Relay for Life of South Washington County Friday and Saturday at East Ridge High School.
"It's important and it's also a way to escape the monotony," Marty said, a bit tired after completing two laps around the track.
