Cancer is one poster JoAnne Agrimson never wanted to be on. 

“I am a poster child for getting a colonoscopy at age 50, but because my mother was ill at that time, I waited until I was 51 – and Easter break – to have my first routine colonoscopy, where I was found to have cancer March 31, 2010, at Winona Health,” recounted Rushford-area resident Agrimson.

Agrimson will be featured as the guest speaker of the Fillmore County American Cancer Society (ACS) Relay for Life survivors’ tea. The event will be held Friday, July 28, at Rushford Lutheran Church in Rushford. It will kick off the night-long event, which will include many activities to raise funds for cancer research and patient services.
