Why I Participate in a Relay Event
For my entire life my grandfather has been there to support me, whether it was at a band concert, swim meet, or a birthday party. The mutual bond we share is very close as he and my grandmother live nearby, so I have always been able to visit. Earlier this year doctors discovered cancer in his esophagus. He has undergone radiation treatments and is bravely living with this disease. Sadly, I lost my other grandfather to cancer 6 years ago. He was a very special person. I miss him very much and wish he had lived long enough for me to know him as a young adult.
Why I Support the American Cancer Society
Every day, the American Cancer Society helps people take steps to reduce their risk of cancer or find it early when it is easiest to treat. They provide free information and services when and where people need it throughout their journey to get well. They invest in groundbreaking research to find, prevent, treat, and cure cancer, and work with lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and rally communities worldwide to join the fight.
I have signed up to walk and fundraise in my local Relay For Life event. I hope you will consider joining my team and/or making a donation in support of my efforts.
Together, we have the power to help create a world where cancer can no longer claim another year of anyone?s life.
Thank you to my supporters!
