Relay For Life

My Relay Center

This link is to my team's web page forthe American Cancer Society's Relay for Life.

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 and not just type out some Status on facebook for others to like and copay and past to their status for an hour.

Almost everyone has been touched by cancer, either through their own personal battle or through someone they love.
 A month ago my Step-mother left this life due to this awful disease. It has been truly heart breaking. Over 20 years ago I lost My Grandmother. Just about 40 years ago My Papa. Cancer research has done wonders in finding new cures. My step-mother's life was extened about 6 years because of new medications. She became too ill and was overcome before she could try one of the latest. There is Hope in the research and studies. Hope that we have a few more birthdays, mother's days, father's days and many other holidays a few more years. There is Hope we are gaining ground in finding even more cures in over coming this disease. With that hope comes another day we are able to spend with the ones we love.  I don't want to another person I love to have to die with Cancer. Do you?

 Please consider donating in memory of someone how has passed or in Honor of someone who bravely lives on defeating this disease.

 Thank God for those who work tirelessly to help us breath another day.
And thank you for your contributions.
