CRESTVIEW — Cheryl Morris says her husband, Glenn, was "moved to tears" last year when he learned assistance with medical bills was in sight.
Morris and eight other local residents were selected to benefit from the Cancer Freeze, a Feb. 1 Florala event where residents can enjoy watersports, a 5K walk and run, chili cook-off, car show and other activities while supporting local families.
"(Glenn) was grateful for the support," event organizer Caleb Davidson said. "He was very humble, quiet and reserved. I could tell that he didn't feel comfortable receiving assistance."
The East Tennessee native, an L-3 Communications Crestview Aerospace worker and long-time Woodlawn Baptist Church member, died last year from terminal stomach cancer at age 55.
