      Cancer survivor organizes golf tournament to give back

      RICHLAND - A handful of years after a young girl was pronounced cancer-free, a giant golf tournament was held to give others the same fighting chance.

      Despite the wind -- nearly 70 golfers showed up to take part Saturday morning. In all, more than a dozen teams took to the Columbia Point Golf Course.

      Hannah Davison organized the tournament. The young girl was only six-years-old when she was diagnosed with leukemia. She eventually beat cancer--- and says she'll never forget the sight of all the supporters coming together.

      "It was so exciting - I was standing over here and I made a little speech -- I was kind of nervous for it, and then all of a sudden -- and I said -- 'okay, let's have a great day' -- and everyone just takes off and claps. I was on such a high -- it was such a cool experience," said cancer survivor Hannah Davison.

      All the money from Saturday's event will go toward the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life of Columbia River event.
