NORTH LIBERTY– Next month, dozens of superheroines will unite in the fight against cancer, thanks to one North Liberty resident.
When Jason Gavin learned in December, 2008, that his sister had breast cancer, and then learned of his mother’s diagnosis of breast cancer just two months later, it was a lot for one family to handle.
“At first, I couldn’t believe it. It was a big, strange shock. The whole mortality thing kind of hits you,” said Jason. “I wanted to do something to help.”
