Area high school pays tribute to young Lee's Summit man

TOPEKA, Kan. - A young Lee's Summit man's battle with cancer will come to life in Topeka in late January.

Karen McWhirt wrote a book about her son Ian Drazick's fight with testicular cancer from diagnosis to his death. "Together We Will Win: What Happens When We Don't Talk About Testicular Cancer" was published in 2009.

On January 26th through the 29th , the Topeka High School drama department will re-enact Ian's story as part of its upcoming production of "Cancer: Inspiration and Hope, a Night of Poetry and Prose."

McWhirt says she plans to attend all four performances of the play.

You can find more information on the play on the production's Facebook page.
