Relay for Life

Dear Family and Friends,

I’ve decided to take action against cancer by participating in the American Cancer Society Relay For Life event right here in my community. Relay For Life® is about celebration, remembrance, and hope. By participating, I am honoring cancer survivors, paying tribute to the lives we've lost to the disease, and raising money to help fight it. My Grandmother in law Dolores Hartson was a breast cancer survivor. I will walk for her. My great aunt IS a breast cancer survivor. I will walk for her. My maternal grandmother and grandfather as well as my paternal grandmother all had cancer. I will walk for them. Two of my great friends have a friend that was dear to them-35 years old, wife and mother of 2 young children. She died of cancer last month. I have chosen to be on the team that supports her. (Shannon's sunshine) I never met her, but I will walk for her.

Please help support me in this important cause by making a donation. (anything will help!) It is faster and easier than ever to support me by making a secure, tax-deductible donation online using the link below.

Whatever you can give will help - it all adds up! I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.

My Gramma is huge into Relay-for-Life...she and her church do all sorts of fundraising every year. One year I did the walk with the luminaries & everything -- that was very, very moving. My dear Papa died of lymphoma in 2000...
