Holly Lake woman battling fifth cancer

47 year old Candy Maddux of Holly Lake has undergone 4 treatments and surgeries for different types of cancers over the past 3 years. Her courageous battle has inspired friends in Wood County to hold a benefit concert to help her pay enormous medical bills.

Maddux is being tested now for a fifth possible cancer, but still has a positive outlook.

"It's just so uplifting when you've won it. You can get in remission, it can go away, some of the cancers are just cut out and...they don't come back, so there's just a lot of good to it and I just want people to know don't give up. Cancer is not what it was 20 years ago, where it's a death threat. It can be won," said Maddux.

The Candy Maddux benefit concert will be held this Saturday night at Holly Lake Hall in Holly Lake Ranch from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
