My Reason to Relay
I am participating in the American Cancer Society?s Relay For Life because I want to make a meaningful difference in the fight against cancer.
Almost everyone has been touched by cancer, either through their own personal battles or through the experiences of loved ones. The losses are all too common and hurtful when men, women and children who are such vital parts of our lives are taken away by this insidious and indiscriminant killer.
The good news is medical research has been making progress. It wasn't long ago that the words cancer and survivor couldn't be used in the same sentence. Now, they are with increased frequency. My younger sister, Margaret, is a cancer survivor. So is my Uncle Bill and thousands of others. There is indeed hope for those who are stricken.
Every day, the American Cancer Society is helping us stay well by preventing cancer or finding it at its earliest, most treatable stages. They assist families in finding the best resources to help their friends or loved ones deal with a diagnosis and their journeys to get well. The American Cancer Society is also rallying communities (like ours!) through events like Relay For Life, to fight back and find cures for this disease.
Please join the effort by joining our team or one that is active near you. You can also make a donation to help the American Cancer Society create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Together, we can help make sure that cancer never steals another year of anyone?s life!
Thank you to my supporters!
