Relay for Life

Friday, April 19, 2013



We are participating in one of our local Relay for Life events tonight. I am excited but nervous because that is A LOT of walking! This event is 18 hours. I don't plan on walking the entire thing...that would be nearly impossible but I would like to walk a lot tonight.

This is my first relay...I hope the first of many. They ask why you relay. I am walking for my mom's partner Estelle who died last June after battling Pancreatic cancer for over a year. It was unexpected but then again it wasn't. It has been a hard year with death around me but by doing this I can feel like I am giving back and standing up for someone!


My mom, me, and Estelle on my wedding day. I love this picture of us!!

    You will love Relay! This September will be my 4th Relay my 2nd year as a member of the committee. I walk for so many loved ones and friends whose lives were cut short from cancer. I am also a cancer survivor.
