This year I am celebrating EIGHT YEARS CANCER FREE!!!!!!! Woo Hoo!!!! I also have another very important reason this year. My Mom was diagnosed with Stage 4 Adenocarcinoma and is currently fighting for her life. ACS is continuing to fund cancer research so that CANCER can be eliminated completely from our lives. I am fortunate to work for an amazing company that matches all donations made up to $5000.00!!! My personal goal is $500. It's a stretch, but I know it can be done with the help of my friends and family. The American Cancer Society had a huge hand in my recovery and I will always be indebted to them. No gift is too small. Thank you to all who donate!!
Why I Participate in a Relay For Life Event
I participate because I know that by raising funds and walking in the American Cancer Society Relay For Life event, I will help save lives from cancer, because others helped me by donating to this great cause.
It's overwhelming to think that millions of people will be diagnosed with cancer this year. It might be someone close to us or you or me...
A Relay For Life event is not only a way to join my community to fight back against cancer, but it is also a way to inspire hope by raising funds and cancer awareness to help those facing the disease.
Why I’m Fundraising
Relay participants, including me, all raise funds because we’ve been affected by cancer in some way and because a Relay For Life event gives us the power to fight back. This is my opportunity to honor the cancer survivors in my life, remember friends and family I have lost, and help raise funds to support the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving mission.
Why I Support the American Cancer Society
Every day, the American Cancer Society helps people take steps to reduce their risk of cancer or find it early, when it is easiest to treat. They provide free information and services to cancer patients throughout their journey. The organization is investing in crucial research to prevent, treat, and ultimately, cure all cancers.
I have signed up to fundraise and walk in my local Relay For Life event. I hope you will consider joining my team or making a donation in support of my efforts.
Together, we can finish the fight!
