Matthew Kropf, who survived bladder cancer, was honorary chairman of the 2013 Relay for Life Jefferson County this weekend at Charles Town Middle School. He had no qualms talking about the ordeal he went through in 2010 when doctors removed his bladder and replaced it with one fabricated from a piece of his intestine. “If my story can inspire and help someone else, then I'll tell it over and over,” said Kropf, 47, of Charles Town. His ordeal began in May 2010 when he noticed a slight red color in his urine.

Members of the Looney Patoneys pitched three tents and parked a camper at Norlo Park in Fayetteville on Friday to honor the memory of their beloved friend, Pat Moore.  For the 20 members of her team, it wasn't about sadness, it was about celebrating her life at the American Cancer Society's 10th Annual Chambersburg Relay for Life. “She was always the life of any party. She was a presence,” said Diane Kline, Moore's sister-in-law. “She was what we named the team - looney.” Moore passed away nearly two years ago from complications from uterine cancer, Kline said.
