Local Radio Station Joins Fight Against Cancer 

A local radio station wants its listeners to enlist in the fight against cancer.On Friday morning, WZON AM 620 hosted a radiothon to support the Jimmy Fund, a Boston based charity that supports cancer care and research.Listeners were able to bid on a variety of items up for auction including Boston Red Sox tickets, a baseball signed by Bobby Doerr and even a limited edition baseball card featuring Stephen King.Programming Director Dale Duff says the prizes are all to raise awareness.”In the process, as much as anything just heighten awareness of trying to beat cancer and trying to raise money for research.”Last year, gifts to the radiothon helped the Jimmy Fund raise more than one thousand dollars for cancer research.
