Colon Club board member Tom Bates
celebrates opening of Cancer Survivors Park:
Bates knows the heartache of losing someone to cancer. "For me it was a mother who died when I was 10 of cancer and just recently, 2 years ago, my 29-year-old daughter passed away with colon cancer," he said.
Bates has found a way to always keep his daughter's memory alive through the park.
"At the top of it is a $250,000 dollar naming-right place called 'The Leap of Faith' and I'm honored to say that it will be named after my daughter Lindsey Bates Motley
," Bates told 7News.
