Headlining the 12h annual Voices for Hope event will be local cancer survivor and author, Keith Humphries who is successfully battling stage IV lung cancer.
Humphries lost his own father to cancer when he was just 7 years old and now credits H.O.P.E. with helping him and his family through his toughest days. A longtime sports enthusiast, the Stewartstown resident is the father of four, a longtime local youth coach and owner of Mason-Dixon Sportswear. Author of What Would I Tell Him…, Humphries holds few memories of his own dad and the book was his way of sharing how much his children mean to him and what he learned through the early death of his father.
Diagnosed in 2011, Humphries learned stage IV lung cancer typically offers a six-month prognosis. He now plans to write another book called Overtime that chronicles his 5+ year journey as a cancer patient and survivor. He is also active with the Lungevity Foundation, a Chicago-based nonprofit with ties to the Baltimore Orioles, who host a fundraising walk known as Breathe Deep Baltimore.
