Former resident appreciates support during illness


Nov. 6, 2013 — The editor:

My name is Orville W. Skaggs, Jr. I was born in Grayson in 1947 and went to Gregoryville and Locust schools and Prichard High School. I am now in Inman, SC. As of December 2012 I was told I had bladder cancer and have been treated for it ever since.

The tumor was removed in December 2012, and, thanks to God and treatments, it hasn't come back. I go back to the doctor on Nov. 27. for another biopsy and check up to see if it is back or not. More treatments will be scheduled in January. I just want to request prayer from my friends and family in the area.
