LRPARTNERS_bconner_MThumbCancer has touched the hearts of my entire family over the past three years with the loss of both my grandmother  and grandfather to their fights against cancer. Both of them were relatively young and each were a huge part of my life and the centerpiece of our family. One of the many things that I will always remember about both of them is how much they gave back to their community, church, university and causes they were passionate about.
