Event: Relay For Life of Greater Derry and Londonderry on Friday, June 27, 2014
$1,010 raised $750 goal
This year my team is from Rockinghm Chapter, Order of the Eastern Star and asome ladies and gentlemen will join us on the track. Each year the Worthy Matron leads the Chapter and chooses the Charity. I have participated for the past 6 years and hope to continue for many more.
I relay because my Sister-inLaw has beaten the big C and through continued monitoring and a schedule of treatments she will be able to keep this status. Hopefully there will come a time that a treatment will be available to get rid of that tiny bit that continues to hang around forever. I also walk for those friends and family that were not so fortunate and I hope that I will never have to say goodby again as I did with Carla, Barbara and Ruthie.
Reason to Relay is to join people around the world in celebrating those who have survived cancer, remembering the people we've lost, and supporting the lifesaving mission of the American Cancer Society.
Please make a donation to me or join my team. You are helping deliver the hope that future generations will not have to endure cancer threatening the lives of their friends and family. You have the power to fight back against a disease that affects millions.
The American Cancer Society has funded researchers that have been involved in virtually every cancer breakthrough, including mammography to screen for breast cancer, the Pap smear to test for cervical cancer, the link between smoking and lung cancer, and more recently the link between obesity and a higher risk for the disease. Forty of the researchers it funded early in their careers have gone on to win the Nobel Prize!
You can be sure your donation will be put to good use!
Thank you to my supporters!
