NELLYSTRONG STORY: Former Calhoun resident Tim Nelson (who married to the former Casey Scott) of Carrollton was diagnosed in October 2013 with colon and rectal caner. He underwent chemotherapy and radiation treatments. In February 2014, he had surgery to remove the cancer, but in April 2014 doctors discovered 10 cancerous nodules on his lungs. He currently is undergoing chemotherapy for 6-8 months. Due to the extensive treatments and surgery, Tim has not been able to work since February. All proceeds from the benefit will go to offset medical expenses.
