TULLAHOMA, Tenn. (AP) - Cancer’s effects stretch far beyond the physical, and the emotional and psychological toll the disease can exact are not limited to the individual facing the diagnosis.
These are facts that Tullahoma resident Julia Logan-Mayes and her family know all too well.
After finding solace, guidance and support in connecting with other cancer patients and their families during her husband’s battle with the disease, Logan-Mayes had dedicated herself to providing that network of caring and understanding to people in the Tullahoma area.
Logan-Mayes and her husband, Stephen Logan, were raising their family in San Francisco in 1999 when Stephen was diagnosed with a grade four brain tumor.
Stephen Logan died in May 2001, and Logan-Mayes said the friends she made at Gilda’s Club helped her and her children through their bereavement.
