Relay For Life of Charlotte

Shohei Manabe's Relay for Life

Shohei's Story

In January 2012, Shohei received news that would change his life forever. At a doctor’s appointment, Shohei was diagnosed with Malignant Lymphoma and was advised to begin treatment immediately. He knew the road ahead was not going to be easy, but Shohei was prepared to fight. After 8 months of intense treatment, Shohei was declared cancer-free. It was his strength, perseverance and community of support that led him through this difficult time.

Why We Relay

Every year, thousands of Americans will hear the words they hoped to avoid their entire lives: you have cancer. There was a time when a cancer diagnosis was the worst news a person could receive because it meant life was over. But the investment in cancer research is changing that. The American Cancer Society has invested billions of dollars into research and technological development and significantly improved the survival rate of cancer by 20% in the past 30 years.                                                                                                                                                              

Shohei’s story of survival is shared by millions of patients, survivors, families, and communities around the globe. His tenacity in the face of one of mankind’s deadliest illnesses serves as an inspiration to others who are fighting the same battle. It is Shohei’s journey that has motivated Midrex to establish the annual “Shohei Manabe’s Relay for Life” annual cancer walk. Midrex’s participation in this annual event contributes to the development of advanced treatment methods, increased prevention awareness, and rallies the Charlotte community towards cancer support.

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.
