— Western Correctional Institution inmate Hazard Wilson sews a pillowcase that will be donated to children’s cancer hospitals as Assistant Warden Harry Murphy and Cindy Kerr overlook his work in Cresaptown on Friday. Kerr of the ConKerr Cancer Foundation was visiting WCI to collect 2,000 inmate-made pillowcases. The project was an outgrowth of Murphy’s own cancer battle and his effort to do something for the children who were an inspiration to him.
