Promoting healthy living is a big focus for cancer prevention, key to those fighting cancer, and essential to those who have won their battle. Studies show that exercising regularly and making good lifestyle choices can help.

Looking back over the past several years of my life, I cannot keep count of how many times I heard those words. . . "Did you hear. . . has cancer".
I would say some of the worst were when the news was about my own family. Watching my sweet Brother in law suffer more than he already had in his life filled with already complicated disability - AVM.
The most profound memory of his journey was his realization that the end was near. That will be forever in my mind. The second most profound was watching those who loved him accept that he was gone. One of those mourners being my OTHER Brother in law who continues to fight today. Yes, two out of three sons with cancer.
This sickens me, as I know it sickens you about your story. Try explaining to a 10 year old that kids get cancer too.
My daughter was in 5th grade when she came home to tell me about her new classmate that wore beautiful scarfs on her head. And she couldn't come to school every day. "Mom, how did she catch cancer?" How does one make that answer make sense?
Now it's two years later and this little girl still fights too. So we HAVE to fight with her.
Join us. Help us raise as much as we can to help put an end to these and many other stories.
DUE DATE FOR OUR RECIPE COOKBOOK IS FRIDAY NOVEMBER 9TH. PLEASE PARTICIPATE.
When I think of Relay, I of course think of walking. When I think of walking, I consider the many reasons why people choose to walk. Some people choose walking to get somewhere, some people choose walking to exercise.
If you think about it, Relay can get us somewhere. . . to a cure.
Relay is special because it allows us to remember those we have lost, those who fight. It allows us to honor those who have won the battle. It allows us to gather. . .ALL TOGETHER.
Being involved doesn't require that everyone be a leader, you can be a team captain, a walker, or a donator. You can even spread the word to family and friends. Everyone matters, whatever level of involvement.
We hope to see you there.
