Delano woman walks to fight cancer
MINNEALOPIS, MN When Sheryl Brunken’s close friend, Lisa Korslund, was diagnosed with leukemia in 2010, the Delano woman felt helpless. “I remember feeling bad I couldn’t help her because there’s typically an age limit for donating stem cells,” Brunken said. “If I were younger, I would have clearly signed up. Unfortunately, I was not able to help out at that time.”That hasn’t kept Brunken from helping in other ways, such as walking in her third Be the Match Walk/Run Saturday in Minneapolis.
