THELMA, 99, SURVIVES CANCER, CHEERS ON DAUGHTERS IN WALK

by Craig Altschul

Ninety-nine-year-old Thelma Tulloch survived a bout with breast cancer four years ago, says the Stowe Reporter. She participated in the LACiNg Up for Cancer’s 12-hour walk by cheering on her daughters as they completed the laps at the Peoples Academy in Morrisville recently. The organization provides grants to help cancer patients with their expenses. The event raised over $100,000 last year. Patients can request a variety of services to help them, including a gas card to help pay for travel, cash for prepared meals, or house cleaning services. Tulloch supports the Lamoille Area Cancer Network because all the money raised goes directly to cancer patients. Her support is driven by her personal experience and also by the loss of her daughter who died from lung cancer. “I appreciate life and what I have more,” Tulloch said.
