Why I Relay

Why I Relay

Cancer has affected so many people I know and love that it’s inspired me to join Relay For Life.

This year I walk for mom. Mom fought through breast cancer. It wasn't easy. And then about 4 years later she was diagnosed with a melanoma on her torso. She had the spot removed. And then some lymph nodes. And then it metasticized to her lungs; that was a battle she couldn't win. My brothers and I were able to take care of her in her home for about 8 months with the help of Hospice care from Kaiser until she passed away. It was hard both emotionally and physically but it would have been so much harder without the help of family and friends and hospice care.

So this year I took on the role of the Co-Lead for the Menlo Park/Palo Alto relay. I would like to donate my energy and talents to raising funds for cancer research and raise awareness of how devastating this disease is for so many people. We all need to help when it comes to cancer. Won't you help us raise funds and join my team to help us kick Cancer out of this world?

Funds raised support cancer patient programs and groundbreaking research that can help save lives. This event also celebrates over 15.5 million cancer survivors nationwide. 15.5 MILLION. That’s huge. That’s why I’d love your support. Will you walk with me? And if you can’t would you be so kind as to make a donation?

Thank You Donors

Here’s how recent money raised has been put to incredible uses.

$410 million as of

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.
