Burdens battle makes Relay for Life personal
Placeholder Image
Tonight’s Relay for Life brings a personal perspective for Rita Burden, a woman who has battled deadly cancer three different times. As one who urges everyone to have regular medical checkups and encourages all women to have regular mammograms, Rita says, “I highly advise women if they suspect anything to not put it off. Please see a doctor.”Her battle with cancer began in 1994 when she found an unusual patch of skin on her temple, just beside the right eye.
