FARGO — While at band practice Wednesday night, Sept. 26, 42-year-old Luke Helm, of Fargo, received an unlikely notification on his phone.

FARGO — Just days after a procedure to remove a cancerous tumor in his brain in late August, 37-year-old Travis Anderson, of Fargo, thought he'd take a shot in the dark. A hail mary, if you will.
