Forsyth 5-year-old Lance Lawrence receives welcome-home parade after cancer fight

FORSYTH — Lance Lawrence received more than a hero’s welcome last Friday.

The Forsyth 5-year-old with the Iron Man mask got a welcome-home parade fit for the superhero he’s become.

“The parade was pretty awesome, the amount of people that came out. We’re like, ‘They’re here for you, you know that?’ He’s like, ‘Yeah, I know,’” said Jill Dana, Lance’s mom who spent the past seven months with him in Colorado as he went through a number of tests and treatments to shrink a 2.4-centimeter brain tumor.
