Why I Relay

Why I Relay

Why I Relay

Cancer has affected so many people I know and love. My first loss from cancer was when I was 9 years old. My grandmother was diagnosed with lung cancer and died shortly after.

 In 2015, my Uncle Rick passed away after a tough battle with kidney cancer.  His son, Bryce,  introduced me to Relay For Life.

Cancer has affected me in every aspect of my life. Through family, such as my father who was able  to overcome a few years back. Or through mom, one of the the strongest woman I know, who continues to battle skin cancer weekly. Through friends such as John Avalos who amazes me everyday with his smile and wit. Or Lisa Burns, who stayed positive through her experience.  My aunt April, who showed such resilience. Through dogs, such as my golden retrievers Cody & Chianti.

This past December, I was hit very hard by my Uncle Harry's passing. Uncle Harry lit up every room he walked into and I was so happy he was able to see his Nats Baseball team win the world series in person. I'm thankful that Relay for Life continues to help my family, friends, and those in my community.

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.
