Relay for Life


As most of you know I have been fighting cancer for the last year or so, and have just recently found out I am in total remission. Yay me! Yet there are many others out there who are still in the fight of their lives, some just starting out, and some who have been bravely fighting for years, my cousin Melinda is one of them.  I have joined with the American Cancer Society in their Relay for Life event this year in my hometown June 19-20.  I am asking anyone out there to consider either joining in on the relay in your own hometown or donate to help save lives..even just $10.00 goes a long way in fighting this terrible disease.  Thank you in advance and God bless!  You may have noticed on the left hand top sidebar my badge for the American Cancer Society, if you click on it, you will be whisked away to my support page.  Cancer doesn't play favorites and I figure neither will I, that is why I have sent a mass email explaining Relay for Life and my part in it to all or most of you.  God bless you all! 

 By the way the picture of the thermometer looking thingy off to the left of this post is how much my team has raised of our $5,000.00 goal.
