“Everyone I know has been affected by cancer in one way or another; whether they’ve had to fight it themselves, or watch a parent, sibling, daughter, son, friend, or co-worker, battle for their life,” said Luke Lonergan. Lonergan’s goal is to raise $10,000 for cancer research in hopes of someday living in a cancer-free world.
