Observer-Tribune: “Support keeps flowing”

A wide spectrum of individuals and businesses have raised $85,000 for a charity to offset medical costs for a young Long Valley battling cancer.

“For the past five years, it seemed every time the phone rang it was bad news. This is the first time in five years that so many good things have happened in a row,” said Larry Lightner, whose son, Glenn, 13, is in the midst of  experimental treatment to stave off his cancer.
