Why I Relay

Why I Relay

I relay for all those who are fighting their own fight against cancer, as well as those who are less fortunate and do not have the funds or support to help them through the tough times.  I have personally been affected by Breast Cancer.  In 2010, I was diagnosed with Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (early stage).  I had a lumpectomy performed which did not get clear margins, so had an additional re-excision performed followed by a month of radiation.  In 2013 I was told that I had a recurrence in the same side. Due to not being able to have radiation in the same location, I underwent a mastectomy using the Tram Flap procedure in August of 2013, and to date CANCER FREE. 

Thank You Donors

Cancer has touched all of us in some way. And we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We'll spend the next few weeks fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Then, on the day of the event, we'll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.  

Together, we'll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.
