Love motivated UT Medical Oncologist Dr. Susan Huntsinger to start a program to help the cancer patients she treats.

"To be able to do this for them and give them just that little bit of spark that little bit of hope is just a wonderful thing," she said.

She realized the holidays can be especially difficult for her patients.

A plain wall in the heart of an East Tennessee town has a fresh new look thanks to fresh paint.

The wall tells the history of Jellico.

The answer was yes.

City workers painted the wall white then Dee Day sketched in some murals reflecting the town's history.
