Though the disease has not affected him directly, a California man continues his trek across America to raise awareness for cancer.
He set off from Vacaville on July 23, and 30 days later with hope on his side, Mike Warren is getting ready to cross the border from Nevada into Utah.
"I retired from my job to fund this journey, and I knew that there was a need and I can walk. And I wanted to do something for all the people suffering from cancer," Warren said.
Wearing a sandwich board advertising his cause, Warren spends the early mornings and the late evenings walking along Highway 50. If he continues at this pace, Warren plans to reach his destination of Baltimore Maryland in 60 days.
