Relay For Life of Carson City-Douglas County

Kidney Beans and Hazel Nuts

Cancer has touched all of us in some way. By that I mean every member of our team is either a survivor, a caregiver and/ or a family member to someone who fought, is fighting or lost their battle and we are done losing to cancer so we fight. Every day we wake up being thankful for another day to join the cause and beat cancer. 

Last year was our inaugural year as Kidney Beans and Hazel Nuts but we have so much history in the American Cancer Society and Relay for Life spanning back to as early as 1997. Originally Kym's Kidney Beans, Kym joined together with Katie and knew that we needed to join forces upon the lose of Katie's Aunt Hazel. All of our family is nuts about Aunt Hazel. She was a fighter, a friend, a mother to the motherless and a true inspiration to those who battle with cancer. Hazel was a survivor of a cancer until her last day on Earth. She showed us that cancer won't win and to stay strong even when life kicks you in the knees. She loved life and any day we don't continue her legacy would be a sad day. We pick up her torch and light the way for the next generation and the next after that, until cancer is no more.

We celebrate those still with us like Kym who fought and lives each day to fight for others like herself to make sure no one fights alone. Her passion lies with the survivors who understand what is like to live life after the battle and to childhood cancer patients. Going through cancer as a child is one of the hardest challenges to face. 

This year, we join the battle in two areas: Reno/Sparks and Carson City/ Douglas to raise money for Relay for Life. Every dollar helps and every second helps.

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.
