WFXG: Relay for Life raising money for cancer research and patient support

Fox 54’s Shaquille Lord spent Friday night at Westside High School for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life Augusta event. The annual celebration of cancer survivors raises money to fund cancer research, as well as money to offer support services to patients.

Lord interviewed Julia Mazur, an employee at the Georgia Radiation Therapy Center at the Georgia Cancer Center and Linda Johnson. Mazur is a two-time cancer survivor. Johnson is a Relay for Life volunteer and a cancer survivor herself.
