Proud of East Texas: James Boyd

By Joan Hallmark

When James Boyd lost his sister Dora Lynn to cancer, he felt he should have been able to do more and was determined to help others.

The result is the book "Pink Ribbons: Cancer's Answers," a compilation of poems and stories by cancer survivors and their families, as well as cancer information.

The book is sponsored by the "National Foundation For Cancer Research" and 20 percent of the book's proceeds go to the foundation. Boyd is also compiling a second book and invites survivors and their families to submit stories and poems.
