Forsyth County family gives back after cancer experience
The Atfield family attended Lighthouse Family Retreat two years after son Trey was diagnosed with leukemia in 2005. The weeklong seaside vacation is a way for families dealing with childhood cancer to relax and unwind. The family has since volunteered with the organization each year. - photo by For the FCN
