Foundation Inspired By Local Teen Fighting Cancer

FREEDOM ― A teenager from Beaver County who is battling cancer continues to inspire others.

John Challis, from Freedom, was diagnosed with lung and liver cancer. He graduated from high school in June.

Now, the John Challis Courage for Life Foundation, hopes to carry on Challis' message. Its mission is to help high school athletes who have life-threatening illnesses by giving them "life encouraging sporting experiences."

The foundation has scheduled a golf outing at the Chartiers Country Club for August 25 to raise money.
