Cancer has always been a battle in my family.  Father died of Pancreatic Cancer almost 15 years ago.  I am getting very close to the age he was when he died. I can't imagine being on this earth for just another ten or 15 years.  He missed the birth of his 5 beautiful grandchildren, my sisters wedding...the list goes on and on.

This cause is deeply ingrained in me, and I can't think of a family that hasn't had to deal with it in one way or another.  If you want to do something about it,  join the hundreds of people gathering  at Lufkin Middle School Friday night at 7pm for the annual American Cancer Society's Relay for Life event. Cancer survivors, their friends and families will fill the stadium to raise money and cancer awareness.

 

 

No matter who you are, there's a place for you at relay! Each dollar you raise will help save lives. How far will you go to make a difference in the fight against cancer?

Your reasons for walking in the Relay For Life are as unique and special as the story that motivates you.  I have mine, what is yours?  Feel free to honor your loved ones at the bottom of this post using Facebook.  This is your opportunity to not only honor cancer survivors and remember people we have lost, but also to raise funds and awareness to help save lives.
