HAGERSTOWN -- "It's pretty much a miracle that I'm still alive, I think," 14-year-old Alex Marinelli told a crowd gathered Saturday night for a Light the Night walk to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. At 12, Alex was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia that normally strikes adults, said his father, Paul Marinelli. Alex's cancer has been in remission for three years, and he has been involved in the Light the Night walk in Hagerstown for three years. Last year's best fundraising team was St. Mary's for Alex, which raised $6,000.

Vivian Marshall is in pain, and last Tuesday she wanted to share her pain with as many people as she could. Marshall lost her 18-year-old son, Desmar Artis, May 20 in a Hagerstown street shooting and she has been crippled with agony, despair and even physical pain since then. Only recently able to return to work, she testified in Washington County Circuit Court on Tuesday at the sentencing for the man convicted of her son's shooting. She said she still has bouts of uncontrollable sobbing and rarely sleeps through the night.
