Fighting Cancer Among Friends And Family

Mary Hurt is a lifelong resident of Iroquois County. She and her husband live in Crescent City. She is a wife, mother, grandmother and a sister to eight siblings who live throughout the United States. She has been married for 46 years and was a hair dresser for 47 years before recently retiring. In the January of 2011, Mary was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.

"The Lord only gives us as much as he can handle. I know I am stronger for having gone through this challenge, and I am grateful for the care I receive through the specialists available right here in my own community. No one can predict what each day brings, but I can face each day with my faith and the support of my family and friends. This life is a blessing."
