The Quad City Storm are helping people affected by cancer honor their loved ones. For the second year, the team is hosting "Paint the Ice," a chance for local residents to paint the names of others who have fought cancer on the ice at the TaxSlayer Center.

After nearly 20 years of providing help for cancer victims and their families in the Quad Cities, Gilda's Club is expanding, and beginning to offer its services in Clinton.

For at least a couple of hours, cancer patients in the Quad Cities will have fun working together to create art. Tomorrow morning, the Foundation for Hospital Art will host "Paintfest America" at Genesis Cancer Care Institute in Davenport. / Abcodia,

A more accurate test for ovarian cancer is now available in the Quad Cities. But insurance companies won't pay for it yet. On Friday, the Norma Leah Foundation announced local women may request the ROCA blood test.

Nadia Altomare is the CEO of Abcodia, which is based in the United Kingdom with a branch in Boston. It developed the ROCA test over 30 years, concluding with a 15-year clinical trial with 200,000 women.
