Video Feature: UI alumnus’ daughter benefits from Dance Marathon funds

University of Iowa alumnus Kevin Waul says he and his wife chose to live in North Liberty with their four children because of family and the quality of life. Two years ago they discovered a new reason they were glad they stayed in this community: their oldest daughter, Sarah, 4, was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma, a rare disease in which cancer cells are found in bone or soft issue. Learn how the Wauls benefited from the expertise of the health care team at University of Iowa Children's Hospital, and how the more than $1 million raised during the 15th University of Iowa Dance Marathon will benefit other families like the Wauls.
