Our Redeemer Lutheran Church looks to strike out cancer

Posted: Updated:

Breast cancer awareness was the name of the game Thursday night as a local tragedy brings churches together on the softball field.

Back in May, 44-year-old Lisa Cox fell at work. She went to the hospital because of a few broken bones but what the doctors found was so much more. Cox had traces of cancer throughout her body, including breast cancer. She died two weeks later, leaving her three kids and loving siblings behind.

One of those was her brother Paul George, and ever since the tragedy his church has stepped up to the plate. Our Redeemer Lutheran Church  in Greenville is raising money for those affected by breast cancer. Through the charity Gardeners for Hope, the church along with everyone else who has decided to support the cause, provides gifts and other basic needs to cancer patients.

If you want to help Paul George and the Our Redeemer Lutheran Church call 252-744-5604.
