Letter: 17 years ago, I lost my daughter to breast cancer

Reflecting on loss of daughter to cancer

EDITOR: On Nov. 14, 1996, I lost my daughter, Marathon County Sheriff's Deputy Cindy (Fosbender) Hagenbucher, to breast cancer. Since then, the month of October brings different emotions.

Grief: Cindy suffered for two years, fighting courageously to beat this dreadful disease.

Joy: She left us with two wonderful young sons. Jordan, who was 3 years old at the time, is now 20 and attending the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Mason, who was 1 year old then, celebrates his 18th birthday this month. He is a senior at D.C. Everest Area High School. We are all very proud of the boys.

Hope: For the past 15 years, Cindy's husband Mike and Kelly have organized a golf outing to raise money for the American Cancer Society.

I am using this chance to thank everyone involved - golfers, volunteers, cooks, contributors, etc. - in making this undertaking a success.

Mike and Kelly work very hard to make this happen and do a great job. It is my hope there won't be a need for cancer drives for research one day because a cure has been found.

Shirley Fosbender,

Wausau
