David Perkins played music during last year's Relay for Life, never dreaming that by this year's Relay, he'd be among the dozens of cancer survivors on hand to share their terrifying experiences.
"Last year when I came to provide music, I didn't realize that you all were doing this for me," Perkins said with a cracking voice and tears welling in his eyes.
"I became a part of this unique family in February, and have had a lot of help from this new family since I joined."
Not that Perkins is a stranger to one of the leading killers in the United States.
