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.

After serving for two years as the Food Chairperson, I took on the role of Co-Lead for the Menlo Park/Palo Alto relay this year. I would like to donate my energy and talents to raising funds for cancer research and to raise awareness of how devastating this disease is for so many people. 

I take on this labor of love in honor of my 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.

We all need to help when it comes to cancer. Would you join my team and help us raise funds to help us “Harvest Hope” ?

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.
