Alison's Angels

As the expression goes..."We have come a long way baby!"

That team picture was from the first year Alison's Angels was formed and participated in the Salem ACS Relay for Life. It began in 2007 when my parents formed Alison's Angels while I was finishing up the end of IL-2 treatment for stage IV melanoma. We didn't know where my journey would take me at that point, but they wanted to DO SOMETHING to celebrate all the cancer survivors we knew, to remember all our loved ones who had lost their battle, and to help raise money to continue the cancer research that was integral to my survival.

Ten years later I am still very much alive, with two miracles added to our team. Unfotunately, the number of people we know who are diagnosed with cancer continues to increase, and we continue to lose beautiful souls to this disease.

Alison's Angels participated in the Salem RFL for many years, but with our recent move to Sherwood, OR two years ago, wedecided to "relocate" Alison's Angels. This year we will once again join the Sherwood Relay for Life in August. It is a much smaller event than the one in Salem, but we believe it is a wonderful opportunity for our family and friends to get back to the reason we began Alison's Angels: To celebrate all the cancer survivors we love, to remember those who have passed, and to raise money to continue the research that has saved so many lives.

We would love your support, in any way you can give, as we venture past 10 yearsof our journey as Alison's Angels. Financial donations are greatly appreciated, but walking the track with us is just as important and appreciated. Please help us fight back against cancer!
