Hagerstown resident Ginger Barger remembers feeling helpless during friend and co-worker Lisa Barger's battle with cancer.
"She was my best friend all through my life," said Ginger Barger, 34, who said the two shared the same last name but weren't related. "It's tough to watch someone suffer and not be able to do anything."
She said she felt like she could do something positive by walking in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life in honor of Lisa, who died at age 35.
"I hope we can help someone else where they don't have to go through what she went through," said Barger, who participated in a 13-member team including co-workers from the Williamsport Redmen Club, club members and her three daughters.
