Why I Relay

My Reason to Relay

On April 12, 2001 my husband was told that he had cancer. Those words changed our lives forever. He defeated his cancer back thendue to a stem cell transplant. At the time he was used in a study and as a result-his protocol became standard treatment.

On May 31, 2017 we heard "You have cancer again". We were stunned. After some unsuccessfulchemotherapy regimines, his doctor switched him to Immunotherapy. After four treatments, he was once again cured. WHY DO I RELAY? Simple. Immunotherapy did not exist during his first battle with cancer. We Relay. We raise money. That money goes to research. That research created a new drug that once again saved Nate's life.

WHAT WE DO MAKES A DIFFERENCE! Please donate to this worthy cause. Please join my team and walk with me. Please pray for all who are affected by cancer. WE WILL WIN. We are making a difference.

I relay in honor of my husband Nate, brother-in-law Tracy, Grandma Joan, and in memory of my father-in-law Rev. Palkewick, Aunt Audrey, numerous friends and all those who lost the fight.

Please make a donation to me or join my team. You are helping deliver the hope that future generations will not have to endure cancer threatening the lives of their friends and family. Like me, you have the power to fight back against a disease that affects millions.

Thank you for your support ~ Heather

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.
