POLAND, Ohio (WYTV) – A whole lot of denims and cowboy hats had been proven off on the Lake Membership in Poland Saturday evening — not for a live performance, however for the American Most cancers Society’s Cattle Baron’s Ball.
The annual occasion raises cash for most cancers analysis, and this 12 months, organizers fundraised particularly for lung most cancers. The theme was denim and diamonds.
Matt Hiznay, this 12 months’s honoree, is a six-year survivor of stage 4 metastatic lung most cancers.

Hiznay is now enrolled within the Molecular Medication PhD Program at Case Western Reserve Universit
