Why I Relay

Why I Relay

15 years ago my mother was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer, and my whole life changed. I had no idea what cancer was, but the fact that it made the strongest person I know come face to face with death showed me how powerful this disease is which made me want to join the fight against it at a very young age. With the work from her doctors and previous research, my mother was saved from her cancer, which also saved me at the same time. If it is wasn’t for my mother being saved, I would be nowhere near the person I am today, and I would definitely not be at UCLA without the love and support she has always given me.

The helpless feeling my 6-year-old self had while my mother was battling her cancer is what has made me want to help this fight by pursuing a career in oncology, doing lung cancer research with UCLA's medical school, shadowing her oncologist this upcoming summer, and of course, joining Relay for Life at UCLA! Any donation can help me and my team reach our goal. Last year my team placed 2nd in fundraising at UCLA as we raised over $10,000! This year we hope to get 1st place by raising over $15,000! 


Funds raised support cancer patient programs and groundbreaking research that can help save lives. This event also celebrates over 15.5 million cancer survivors nationwide. 15.5 MILLION!! That's huge, which is why I'd love your support. Will you walk with me? And if you can't would you be so kind as to make a donation?

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.
