In 1992, John Husson, from Sierra Vista, was diagnosed with a large cancerous tumor in his lung. St. Jude Hospital provided chemotherapy and a complicated surgery to remove his tumor. Today, he is cancer-free and in the ninth grade. Join John and his parents at the silent auction ending the week-long event on Saturday, June 4, from 5-11 p.m. RA's goal is to raise $75,000 at its eight locations. Please support this worthy cause.
