Why I Relay

My Reason to Relay

I am participating in the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life because I would like to see the world without the cancer. When I was diagnosed with cancer in 2002, I had no idea what that really meant. At 1st it was scary, did not know what to expect. After initial melt down I knew, I had to be strong for my family and friends and hope for the best.
After 14 years of being a breast cancer survivor, I deeply hoped, I would never have to hear those dreaded words,"You Have Cancer” again. I heard those words for the second time in my life. I was lucky, surgery, as no tumor has been found in lungs. Biopsy of the lymph node tested positive for Adenocarcinoma “non-small cell” lung cancer in enlarged lymph nodes. After a series of radiation and chemo treatments I was declared to be survivor for the second time. That did not last very long.
New Year 2018, facing the beast for the 3rd time. Shortly after Thanksgiving I started slurring speech. MRI not so much. Argh!!!
The results showed a 1.6 x 1.7 cm tumor on the right frontal lobe of the brain surrounded by swelling. The CyberKnife, fully robotic radiation IMRT (Intensity modulated radiation therapy) was used to precisely treat and accurately deliver maximum radiation doses, followed  by seroids treatment and the tumor ablation surgery. I concider myself to be very lucky to be cancer free again.

Almost everyone has been touched by cancer, either through their own personal battle or through someone they love. Every day, the American Cancer Society is helping us stay well by preventing cancer or finding it at its earliest, most treatable stages. They assist families in finding the best resources to help their friend or loved one deal with a diagnosis and their journey to get well. The American Cancer Society is also rallying communities (like ours!) through events like Relay For Life, to fight back and find cures for this disease. Please join my team or make a donation to help the American Cancer Society create a world with less cancer!

Together, we can help to beat the beast!

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.
