LaNae and George Ramos of St. Ann Parish in Long Grove are grateful to God and God’s angels for helping them through an ordeal with cancer. The couple strives to help encourage others dealing with challenges.

Remembering the life-changing telephone call from the doctor’s office four years ago brings tears to the eyes of LaNae and George Ramos of St. Ann Parish in Long Grove. They’ve had a strenuous, drawn-out battle with cancer, but appreciate the blessings that come from God each day and strive to reach out to others as an expression of gratitude.
