Until now, two community leaders have kept the causes of their illnesses quiet.
But to advocate early diagnosis and spotlight Saturday’s Relay For Life informational event, County Council Vice Chair Mike Wismer and former Councilor Jim West are sharing their personal cancer experiences.
The men were diagnosed just a few months apart with different types of cancer. Wismer shared their stories during an interview late Tuesday.
“Jim is in Houston undergoing chemotherapy and blood transfusions for Large Cell Lymphoma,” Wismer said.
