Cancer survivor Wiley Nelson received the вЂњHeart of RelayвЂќ at the Relay For Life on Friday.
Nelson was diagnosed with Leukemia as a six-year-old and has been in remission since he was nine-years-old.
Nelson said, вЂњIвЂ™m just so grateful for my family and all they have done for me.вЂќ
Nelson has been participating in the Relay since 1999 and has served on the eventвЂ™s committee since 2006.
One committee member said, вЂњWiley was an inspiration for me when I came on board.вЂќ
Nelson was also the first person from Emery County to receive a special scholarship from the American Cancer Society. The scholarship is only awarded to students who survived cancer as children.
