Sharon Hurst was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor three years ago and has not been able to work in reception at the River Clinic for the past eight months. Last week they discovered spots on the other side of her brain. She and her husband Mark are raising their niece who is in Middle School. Given all their medical expenses, the Hurst Family is behind on their living expenses. Money raised at this year's paddle will go towards alleviating some of the burden on their family.
