The American Cancer Society estimates that about one in eight women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime and that in 2013 about 39,620 mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends will die from breast cancer.
Various risk factors can increase the chances

Unkempt, growing, fertile
Green with expectation
Poking through the cold snow
Tilling over the brown dead winter
Expectations of possibility
Is it contagious?

Wow, there are lots of things going on in Lyons. Pick up the Parks & Recreation brochure and participate!

Monday was April Fool’s Day however, the weather was not fooling when it was so great Easter Sunday. We hope all enjoyed Easter. The Fire District’s Easter egg hunt with Mr. Bunny was great with lots of kids and lots of prizes. Churches were filled with worshipers happy that the Lord “arose” so many years ago to save us from our sins, and give us something to “look” to at all times.
