The Heartland Cancer Center HCC and its support group will host a special visitor who wants to inspire people to give of themselves on behalf of those who are battling cancer. Josh Wolf will be at the HCC, 204 Cleveland St., at 4 p.m. Thursday to tell his story.

Wolf is running, biking and swimming in honor of Laura Kleysteuber who passed away five years ago in Garden City.

"I did not know Laura … but her story of grace, love and endurance strikes a deep chord from within," Wolf writes on his Maintaining the Legacy website. "She has inspired me to do something great. Something bigger than myself. Something for a cause that hits close to home for all of us."

Wolf plans to run the Legacy 10K in Garden City and then start pedaling his bike to Great Bend.

"He is hoping to talk with those interested in learning more about his quest and Laura’s legacy," said Jamie Hutchinson, R.N. and HCC director. "We look forward to listening to his inspirational story."

From Great Bend, Wolf will bike to Manhattan and Kansas City, and run in the Head for the Cure 5K in his continuing effort to raise awareness about brain cancer.

The HCC is part of the St. Rose Ambulatory & Surgery Center family.
