This weekend, Lois and Clark Crinklaw are celebrating 30 years of Clark being cancer-free. He was diagnosed with leukemia in 1987 and received a bone-marrow transplant at Nebraska Medicine. 

Every year, they have gotten more and more decorations, and are inviting the public to celebrate with them.

"Just that he survived, and he walked out of the hospital on Halloween. So we need to celebrate life and I know it's sort of odd, to have all this grim reaper stuff," Lois said. 

"Like she says, it's all dark and grim, but it's happy in here," Clark said, pointing to his heart.
They invite the public to join them at 2310 N. 98th Ave. in Omaha:  

Saturday, Oct. 28 – 6:30 p.m.
Join a big Halloween party celebrating Clark's 30th anniversary of being cancer-free.
 
Tuesday, Oct. 31 – 5:30-8 p.m. 
Halloween is the 30th anniversary of Clark being discharged from Nebraska Medicine, so they will hand out treats to trick-or-treaters to celebrate. Last year, more than 250 kids stopped by their house!
