“I am planning a Cancer Awareness trip in my small plane. I am a cancer victim and a cancer survivor. Everywhere I land I want to give a ride to a cancer victim. Every year too many people die needlessly from cancer. Early detection and treatment can prevent so many deaths.”  —  Jim Davis, April 11th, 2015
