At the event designed to remember those lost and currently battling cancer, one survivor is grateful to be telling his story.
In the summer of 2011, Abrams Village resident Edward Gallant received news that’s becoming more and more common across Prince Edward Island.
At age 79, Gallant was diagnosed with bladder cancer.
After several doctors in Summerside were unsure of the problem, a Charlottetown specialist confirmed it was cancer.
“I was in shocked when I found out,” said Gallant. “I never thought it would happen to me.”
