My wonderful parapro is our school’s Relay for Life chair. She fundraises and fights to bring about awareness to honor her son who was taken too soon to cancer. I have been inspired by her courage, commitment, and passion for the organization. Because of Ro-Ro, I’ve also joined the battle with Relay for Life.
Cancer has not been absent from my own life. My grandmother, uncle, and grandfather-in-love were all taken by the disease. The pain of losing loved ones knows no bounds, and I’ve never witnessed greatest strength. But (Praise God!) my aunt and godsister have both beat cancer, and because of cancer research I am able to rejoice in these victories! Relay for Life is just one small way to remember and honor the greatest fighters our world has ever known… Cancer patients.
Check out the stats! I love this graphic of all of the ways our dollars can make a difference.
Now, I ask you to join with us (even join our team!!) I have joined my school’s team and plan to commit my year to fundraising, spreading awareness, and encouraging those who have experienced both loss and victory to keep fighting… Together, we can conquer cancer!!
