Celebrating survival over breast cancer

Hanson said she was honored that Combest had chosen her Breast Cancer Charity Fund to receive the money raised from the night’s T-shirt sales and donations.

She said today’s technology is making breast cancer more and more curable — but that cure comes with a price.

Scotty Chestnut of the Holt Volunteer Fire Department said the department members were happy to honor Combest for all of her years teaching and coaching at Baker before moving to coach at Crestview.

“You had generations that she coached and the lives that she touched throughout the (Baker) community, and there is no way to really put it into words,” he said. “She influenced girls in the right way and changed their lives.

“And now she’s over here at Crestview, and I believe she will do the same thing. It’s an honor to us to be able to help her in the cause (of fighting breast cancer).”
