Relay For Life of Palatine Rolling Meadows Inverness Presented by Jewel-Osco

Shamrock Angels

We're an award-winning team with the American Cancer Society Relay For Life! We've been relaying since 2001 and have raised over $150,000 as a team in that time, but we won't stop until there's a cure!

The Shamrock Angels team has been raising money to combat cancer since 2001! Over the years, our small team of family and friends has raised over $150,000 for the American Cancer Society, making us one of the biggest fundraising teams in the state of Illinois!

Our family began doing the American Cancer Society Relay shortly after the death of my grandmother Helena Finnegan in 1999, and we've named our team the Shamrock Angels in her honor. Unfortunately, she's not the only family member or friend that we've lost to cancer, or seen fight this battle. Shamrock Angels team members walk in memory and in honor of mothers, fathers, grandmothers, grandfathers, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, daughters, neighbors, coworkers and friends. Our own team is not untouched by cancer. Shortly after Relay several years ago, my father Frank was diagnosed with melanoma skin cancer. Due in part to the awareness raising programs of the American Cancer Society, he took notice of a strange change in a mole, went to his doctor, and was diagnosed and in treatment at Northwestern very quickly. We are pleased that all of the cancerous cells were removed and he was deemed cancer free within weeks of his diagnosis!

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.
