$1,390.41 raised $1,000 goal
My reason for participating in my Relay For Life event is personal. I am a 17 year Hodgkins Lymphoma Survivor!!! I also relay in honor of my Aunt who is battling Adeno Carcinoma Invasive, she has a 0% chance of recovery and is currently undergoing chemo to keep the tumors that she has from growing,I relay in memory of my grandmother Alyse Blomgren who lost her battle to Lung Cancer, Judy a dear friend who lost her battle with Breast Cancer, Reyes aka Sonic a 4 year old who lost his Leukemia battle in October and Sumarsih "Marcy" Axtell who lost her battle with Lung Cancer.
I participate in Relay events because we have been affected by cancer in some way and because a Relay For Life event gives us the power to make a difference and fight back. This is my opportunity to honor cancer survivors, remember people we have lost, and help raise funds for groundbreaking research, information and services for people fighting cancer.
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 are investing in groundbreaking research to find, prevent, treat, and cure cancer, and are working with lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and rally communities worldwide to join the fight!
Together, we have the power to help create a world where cancer can no longer claim another year of anyones life!
Thank you to my supporters!
