Road to Relay: Connections

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

 It's tough to find someone who isn't directly affected by cancer.

Almost everyone has a story with varying degrees of sadness and other emotions.

And it's Relay For Life of Yellowstone County that weaves those stories together as a show of strength in the fight against cancer.

That isn't the end of the cancer story for Robin Hanel, this year's Relay For Life of Yellowstone County Co-Chair.

Her father-in-law, the father of Billings Mayor and Relay For Life Co-Chair Tom Hanel, has gone through three types of cancer.

The Hanels' parents are survivors, but not without facing many challenges.

Ruth and Lee Killman say after their son David's cancer diagnosis, their world suddenly turned upside down.

But their son fought cancer head on.

Steve Solberg, next year's Relay For Life Chairman, says losing his wife to cancer was awful, and it tipped over his family.

She was a mom and a wife who missed her sons' weddings.

But life goes on with the help of Relay For Life.

A big thank you to photojournalist, Tyson Adams who worked with me on all of the Road to Relay pieces.
