Once Upon A Time, there was an evil that struck across the land. People were so afraid of it, it was simply The-Disease-That-Shall-Not-be-Named. It invaded lives, The-Disease-That-Shall-Not-be-Named, not caring who it hurt - mothers, fathers, sons, daughters - nor did it care how old they were, or what they did for a living. Many people tried to take it on - theatricals, librarians, soldiers, baristas, and more -  but they lost so many they cared about. Until one day they came together, raising their voices, getting loud and being silent no more. It was no longer The-Disease-That-Shall-Not-be-Named, it was Cancer. And they would Fight Back. And one day, yes, one day they would Finish The Fight, and see cancer finally perish.


Team GEEK is one such force, fighting back against the clutches of Cancer. We are survivors. We are caregivers. We have sat in that room and have had to hear the three most horrifying words around - "you have cancer." And whether those words were directed at us, or someone we loved, we knew we were ready to fight. Team GEEK participated in it's first Relay For Life in August of 2010. This year marks our seventh anniversary in the fight against cancer, and we still have miles to go. Relay For Life helps us fight back against this disease and provide funding for programs that aid people going through treatment, support for survivors and caregivers, along with helping facilitate grants and studies to find a cure.
