Why I Relay

Just a piece of ‘Why I Relay’...

God, in His perfect way, laid my cancer journey out like a beautifully finished puzzle that started on 9/29/14. You may have heard me say a time or two, “Allstate saved my life!” If it wasn’t for the rewards Allstate gave to have a yearly physical, I would not have been referred by my PCP to have my very 1st mammogram when she found a lump. I was diagnosed on 10/29/14 with Tripple Negative breast cancer, a very aggressive type of cancer. The day of my 1st chemo treatment was one I will never forget! My sweet son, Brentley, age 9, told me, “You have to be scared to be brave!” He also said he knew I would be fine because they had coffee!! My precious daughter, Bridgette, age 12 made me a picture collage that said, “We are here for you!” and wrote me this poem: You brighten up my day with a smile of warm embrace. Even in times I’m blue, you know how to lighten up my face. Is it your comforting touch or just the way you care? Or how you’re good at everything and when needed always there. Whenever times are good or bad, you’re my compass, my guiding light. You’re my shelter when it rains and my lantern in the night. So thank you mom, with all my heart. You deserve endless praises for all the love you give to me. Thank you for being there through all of my phases.

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.
