Relay For Life of Lynbrook East Rockaway

In Loving Memory of Ed Lawton & Antonio Ronga

As most of you know, I chose to dedicate my life to the fight against cancer after losing my dad, and my dear friend Antonio to this disease. On May 27, this will be the 10th anniversary of the passing of my dad. Losing a loved one this way leaves you with a pain in your heart that never subsides and the tears are never far beneath the surface. Sometimes I feel as though I can't breath I miss him so much. THIS is why I relay. I know my work is important and can prevent another family from missing their loved one every second of everyday. Your donation can save a life. Please help me remember my dad and reach my personal fundraising goal of $2,500.

Thank you for helping me save lives,

Love

Brit
