Diane Severson uses kind words to describe Les Severson, her brother-in-law.
"He's a big, tough guy, but he's really a teddy bear," she said.
After he was diagnosed with lung cancer in December 2017, Les has fought the disease with his characteristic toughness, Diane said. He has undergone radiation and chemotherapy treatments for about six months, and continues to receive treatment as the need arises.
"He comes on as that big, tough guy, which is OK in this case, because he's battling cancer," she said.
Benefit set for July 21:
Mindful of the costs for the cancer treatments, Les's family and friends have organized a benefit to be held at the Stewartville American Legion Post 164 on Saturday, July 21 beginning at 4 p.m. The event will include a live auction, silent auction, beanbag toss, items for sale, and music.
