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.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - "He told me to pull over, and my jaw just dropped," a Spokane woman, who says a fake police officer tried to pull her over, doesn't want to be named. In fear, this could happen again. "It really scared me and kind of threw me off that night. I don't even want to drive by myself anymore," she said.

    Man accused of assault after putting wife with dementia on leash

    Tuesday, September 18 2018 10:40 AM EDT2018-09-18 14:40:20 GMT

    A Maryland man is facing a simple assault charge after using a dog leash to lead his wife around a Pennsylvania fair because she has late-stage dementia.    West Manchester police say Walter Wolford yanked the 8-inch long red nylon leash, causing his wife's head to jerk back and leave red marks around her throat. But the 66-year-old Hagerstown man says he only gently tugged on the leash, which he uses to keep his wife from getting lost.
