Relay For Life a tribute to those who’ve battled

By Correne Martin

“I volunteered for American Cancer Society for 26 years without cancer and, the truth is, I got so much more out of raising money for the organization than I put into it.”

Those are the words of Prairie du Chien resident Mary Ann Heisz, this year’s honorary co-chair of the Great River Relay For Life, which will take place at the Prairie du Chien High School track, Saturday, Aug. 2, beginning with the survivor lap at 10 a.m. Heisz will make the lap in a wheelchair, pushed by her family.

As the former coordinator of the local Relay For Life for many years, Heisz stepped down from her post about six years ago, figuring it was time for new blood to run the annual tribute to cancer research. Then, almost three years ago, she was diagnosed with cancer herself. Doctors found three B-cell lymphomas—two in her stomach and one in her upper thigh—and, just three months later, stage one breast cancer.
