RealBarBQ hosts fundraiser for Plymouth-Canton parent Joanne Savage, who is battling cancer just one year after losing her husband to cancer.

The benefit for cancer patients is not a typical fundraiser walk.
Thousands of people are expected to walk around Heritage Park this weekend as part of Canton's 14th Relay for Life. The annual American Cancer Society fundraiser has drawn 76 teams so far.
