Fund drive for cancer patient
BY ANDIE L. BRYMER
Cleveland County folks are rallying
around Cathi Bales, a 21-year-old
woman with malignant melanoma.
Bales, who now lives in Florida,
grew up in this area. Local residents
may remember her mother Gwen
Wilson who worked as a registered
nurse in the intensive care unit of
Cleveland Regional Hospital.
Doctors say the cancer was caused
by a cigarette burn Bales received three
years ago. The burn failed to heal. In
March, Bales sought medical attention
and was diagnosed with stage II skin
cancer. A 14 inch growth was removed
than a sunburn.
