HINESBURG, VT - 20 AUGUST 2008 -112008JT33-
In the background, Tracie Marcil and her cousin Nashira Baril cheer on Marie Tyrrell as she takes off her sweater to jump in the lake with them in Hinesburg, Vt. on Aug. 20, 2008. This was the first time since being diagnosed with stage four lung cancer that Marie was able to swim in the lake without being short of breath or too weak to swim. This was also the first summer since being diagnosed that Marie was not undergoing chemo treatments.
