Welcome to the Relay for Life of Valdez! Since 2005, we have been working hard to end cancer in our community. We all know how heavy a burden cancer can be, and our mission is to help our friends, families and loved ones in this fight. Since 2005, we have raised $342,735! Through fundraising such as fun runs, garage sales, raffles, and bake sales, we make a difference for all those who have to fight this terrible disease. We aim to raise awareness on cancer through prevention, education, and work to get patients into treatment. Whether it's flying someone to Anchorage to treatment for free, helping them with wigs or prosthetics, or even a class on how to rock that bandana, we are here to say you're never alone when fighting cancer.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE YOU KNOW HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER:
Our Patient Navigator, Jessica Rivera, is stationed in Providence Cancer Center in Anchorage, AK. She is available to anyone with questions, concerns or needs. She can be reached at (907) 212.5605, or at email@example.com.
Regardless of time, we also have a 24/7 help line at 1-800-227-2345. For more information, visit cancer.org.
The American Cancer Society is able to provide a limited number of donated flights through RAVN Alaska, and may be able to provide donated hotel rooms for visits out of town. In addition, we can provide rides to and from treatment, using volunteer drivers in our Road to Recovery Program.
We also offer Look Good, Feel Better courses at the J. Michael Carroll Cancer Center. Using licensed estheticians and cosmotologists, we work to give women the skills and tools (including donated makeup kits) to manage their appearance during cancer treatment.
For all these programs and more, contact Jessica Rivera, and we will work to find resources for you, depending on availibility and scheduling.
