CHAMPAIGN -- People are using social media to fight breast cancer. It's tonight's Caring Communities. Lanz Heating & Cooling has been using its Facebook page to raise money for research.
    Each time someone "liked" its page, the company donated $25 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Customers could make a video to show why they support breast cancer research.
    One of those was a cancer survivor. The company presented a check for $2,125 to Susan G. Komen. People have posted 85-videos since January.
