HEALTH
Knocking out eye cancer twice
For Dorsey Earnest, his farm in Palmetto, Georgia, has never looked so beautiful. That's because for years he had little vision in one eye and his other eye was hit with cancer — twice. Earnest can now see clearly in one eye, after treatment at the Emory Eye Center.
