CLYDE

Linda Noftz knows how to give.

She and her husband, Ed, helped raise 32 foster children since 1996 as fosterparents for Sandusky County Job and Family Services.

The hardest thing for the 59-year-old mother of four is allowing people to give back.

Noftz was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer in 2003, and soon after learned she will need to undergo chemotherapy treatments for the rest of her life to keep the cancer at bay.

Noftz said it was a shock to find out how advanced the cancer was.
