Register as a Survivor or Caregiver

Relay For Life gives us the opportunity to celebrate those who have had cancer, beat cancer, or lost their personal battle to cancer.  You are considered a survivor from the moment of diagnosis, even if you are still undergoing treatment. Survivors are the very reason why we Relay. 

Caregivers are those special people who have provided support or care for a cancer patient at any time during their journey. It may be a meal, a ride to treatment, or just a shoulder to lean on.  Caregivers play an crucial role in the journey of a cancer survivor.

Share Your Stories of Hope

If you are a survivor or caregiver and would like to share how cancer has touched your life, why you are raising money for the American Cancer Society Relay For Life or why you are participating, please share it on your personal registration page. You can include stories, photos and let everyone know why this event is so important to you.  Then you can send your page to family and friends in the hope it will inspire them to join us in our effort to #FinishTheFight  Click here for instructions on how to personalize your page.
