Why I Relay


Why I’m Participating in a Relay For Life Event
In 1995 at the age of 38 and a mother of two young daughters I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkins Disease. I was given only a 40% survival rate! I didn't like those odds! I was one of the lucky ones who was able to join an experimental clinical trial. Peripheral Stem Cell Replacement (bone marrow transplant). It was a very new treatment being developed through the research of the American Cancer Society. Not gonna sucked! But I am sure that without
 this treatment and the continuous research by the American Cancer Society, I would not be here today to tell my story. I have a vivid memory of the first time I participated in the Survivor's Lap at the Greater Attleboro Relay For Life. As I walked the track past the beautifully lit and strategically placed luminaria bags, each commemorating someone touched by cancer, the smiling faces from onlookers was incredible!  When they announced my name, along with all of the other survivors, there was an overwhelming feeling of peace and acceptance. Being part of the Relay For Life has tremendously helped to keep me focused by concentrating on the importance and impact of team work, and continually reminds me that I am not just a victim of Cancer... I am a Survivor!

Why I’m Fundraising
By raising funds and walking in a Relay For Life event, I am participating in the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving mission, and I would really appreciate your support! The funds I raise helps fund important cancer research, supports cancer patient programs and services, and goes toward other important activities that help save lives from cancer. 

Why I Volunteer with the American Cancer Society
By walking in a Relay For Life event I join more than four million global volunteers who are dedicated to finishing the fight against cancer. This is my opportunity to honor the cancer survivors in my life, remember friends and family I have lost, and to raise funds to support the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving mission.

Please join my team or make a donation
in support of my efforts. Thank you!

Together, we WILL finish the fight!

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.
