EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- A stretch of Highway 85 is in full bloom right now with sunflowers.
The flowers were planted by family members and local farmers along the highway between Eau Claire and Caryville.
The sunflowers are In memory of Babbette Jaquish. She lost a nine year battle with Multiple Myeloma, a form of cancer, last November. Jaquish was always know as "The Sunflower Lady" and the flowers stand as a memorial to her.
Jaquish's daughter, Jennifer White says, during her mother's treatment she underwent many clinical trials that often had to be paid out of pocket. White says, the sunflowers will be harvested and sold with a portion of the profits going to help families that have extensive cancer treatment costs.
