HINESBURG, VT - 20 AUGUST 2008 -112008JT36-
Tracie Marcil, right, and her cousin Nashira Baril hold on to Tracie's mother Marie Tyrrell as they swim in Lake Iroquois 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.
