Why I Relay

My Reason to Relay

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.

Almost everyone has been touched by cancer, either through their own personal battle or through someone they love. Some of you know that I am a nurse, some of you know that I've worked in cancer research, but fewer know that I relay for personal reasons. My life as well as many of you has been drastically affected by cancer. At the age of 5 my uncle passed away from cancer and I vowed to help find the cure for cancer. I went to college and earned a degree in Genetics and worked for several years in basic science research. Then I went back to school to become a nurse.

Even with all that preparation, it did nothing to prepare me to lose my 22 year old sister to brain cancer in 2008. Unfortunately cancer has no respect for person, whether you are young, healthy, vibrant or aging and week, it can strike anyone at anytime and it is always unexpected. I relay for me, my family, my loved ones, and my community.

Every day, the American Cancer Society is helping us stay well by preventing cancer or finding it at its earliest, most treatable stages. They assist families in finding the best resources to help their friend or loved one deal with a diagnosis and their journey to get well. The American Cancer Society is also rallying communities (like ours!) through events like Relay For Life, to fight back and find cures for this disease.

Please join my team or make a donation to help the American Cancer Society create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Together, we can help make sure that cancer never steals another year of anyone's life!

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.
