It’s perhaps what makes the discussion so difficult as the needs now outweigh the particular wants of the individual in question.

As the sun sets, things are typically just getting started for Relay For Life, but a few hours in, when the darkness truly hits, Relay grasps at your heartstrings.
It is then, typically at 9 p.m., that all the lights are turned off and the only light that lines the track are those from bags and torches honoring cancer survivors, recognizing caregivers and remembering someone who has lost his or her life to cancer.
