KHQ.COM - Cancer doesn't discriminate. Everyone seems to know at least one person who has lost the battle to the horrible disease but most of us can name a handful of victims. The statistics are scary: one in two men and one in three women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. It can be hard to be optimistic with odds like that, but when cancer knocks at your door, the only option is to fight.

In honor of  all of your loved ones who have lost the fight, we have put together this slideshow to remember them.

Feel free to post more photos in the comment section below and share your favorite memory of your loved one who has passed.
