My Goal $750.00
Why I Relay
Cancer has been an unwelcome disease in the lives of too many family members and friends. I continue to participate in Relay For Life so others will not have to learn that their loved ones have cancer.
My first husband Mike Strong was taken by colon cancer at the age of 44. His death affected not only me and our son Andrew, who was 17 at the time---but also family, friends, and the whole community.
My mom had a stage 1 colon cancer diagnosis, a cousin has had two different primary colon cancers. Aunts have had breast cancer, colon cancer, uncles have passed from melanoma and esophageal cancer. My best friend Barb Lay passed in 2008 from colon cancer. And so many other extended family nembers and friends. That's why I continue to support the programs of the Anerican Cancer Society through fundraising for Relay For Life.
Your support and donations are greatly appreciated! And I would appreciate your prayer for favorable weather on Saturday and a successful, safe event. THANK YOU! Love you all!
COVID-19 has put cancer patients at risk attacking already weakened immune systems, delaying cancer treatments, and closing many clinical trials. Because of the impact cancer has had on my life, I'm doing something about it. I've joined Relay For Life to remember people we've lost and offer up support to anyone in our community who is affected by cancer. And that's why I need your support!
The funds I'm raising will help sustain critical research and patient services in this difficult time. Believe me, every dollar really does count, so I'm asking for your help. Please donate today, because together we can accomplish anything!

Thank You Donors

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.
