Cheri Race is battling breast cancer again

Cheri Race, wife of Carl Race, a former area Schwan’s man, has been diagnosed with breast cancer again.

She was known as “Grandma Cheri” by students, parents, and teachers at Ridgeview Elementary, where her grandchildren attend school.

Cheri is in Colorado Springs getting treatment, but the couple lost their health insurance as a result of Carl losing his job. An account has been set up by friends in Cheri Race’s name at First National Bank of the Rockies in Craig, in order to help pay for medical bills, transportation and other expenses.
