Why I Relay

Relay is a special experience that brings friends, family, and communities together with one common goal: 

To live in a world without cancer.

Each Relay participant has a different relation to cancer, but all have hope that one day there will be a cure for this awful disease. 

We relay for my grandparents who lost their battles to cancer. We relay for my best friend who is a survivor and won her battle. We relay for my father who is still fighting and we relay for the hope of living in a world without cancer. Each of us have seen cancer tear apart families and dramatically change lives. No family should have to face the challenges and heartbreak that cancer brings. Our dream is that dream that one day there will be a cure for this horrific disease.

Relay for Life has made strides in fulfilling that dream. This is why our team continues to participate in this life-giving event year after year.
