Why I Relay

My Reason to Relay

My team is focused on childhood cancer. All of the money raised by this team will go specifically fo childhood cancer research. Every day, 45 kids are diagnosed with cancer. 1 out of every 5 will die from this disease. I have 3 beautiful children and I am a teacher. I truly feel that the only thing they should worry about is what they are going to play today. No child should have to worry about living long enough to be able to vote. Please help me protect our children by joining the fight by becoming a member of the team or making a donation.

I started relaying in 2008 for another reason...

I relay because my brother, Jeff, was diagnosed with stage IV colorectal cancer when he was 30. It is rare for someone so young to have this type or cancer. Further testing found that Jeff has a rare gene mutation called Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP). Most people who have this gene inhereit it from a family member. Jeff self-mutated. When he was 7, an ophthalmologist found a spot on the back of his eye. They sent my brother to a specialist in San Francisco to check to make sure it wasn't a tumor. Everyone was relieved when they found that it was "just a freckle." Years later, this freckle was found to have a connection with people who have the FAP gene. If we would have known, Jeff would have started getting checked for tumors when he was 12. We didn't know. Research didn't know then. They know now. I relay for the strides they will make tomorrow.  
Your efforts will help the American Cancer Society fund groundbreaking cancer research, provide up-to-date cancer information, advocate for all people to have access to screening and treatment, and offer free programs and services to improve the quality of life for people facing cancer.

Jeff died on January 24, 2013. In the days before he died, he was not lucid most of the time. In one of the valuable moments when he was, Jeff made us promise to keep fighting cancer. Plese join me in that fight.

By being a part of Relay, we are joining a worldwide movement to help defeat cancer for future generations.

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.
