The American Cancer Society chose Randy and Becky Green as two of its 2018 Tributes of Hope. Randy and Becky Green met in Monroe, Louisiana, made Alexandria their home for many years while owning a local Pharmacy but now they have retired to Cane River. Both Randy and Becky have battled cancer, Becky being diagnosed in 1997 with breast cancer and Randy battled melanoma and renal cancer. Becky sought treatment at MD Anderson in 1998 where she met her “temporary family.” All of her life she would complain about having big crazy hair. During the summer of 1998, she was bald and living in an apartment in Houston seeking radiation treatment. “Be careful what you wish for” she said. Randy’s cancers were fortunately detected early and surgically removed. Randy said, “We should all tip our hats to the American Cancer Society, through their efforts to provide financial support to research, emotional an educational support for patients, the ACS has benefited untold numbers in the past and will continue to provide benefits to untold numbers in the future.
