_When Lester Warner left home for the mountains for the first day of deer hunting, he told his wife, Shirley, it would be for the last time. Three weeks before that, the 86-year-old was in the hospital, dehydrated and sick from the chemotherapy he was receiving in his battle against prostate cancer. The cancer has spread, however, and he recently stopped treatment. Warner, a lifelong hunter, wanted to spend the first day of hunting in the outdoors and with his family, as he has for decades. Warner's sons, Brian and Scott, hoped their frail father could make it, but they weren't sure he could. Les used a walker when he came home from the hospital, and his wife had to lift him into bed. But therapists gave him exercises -- moving his legs and arms -- to get ready for hunting. His strength improved.
