My Reason for relaying:
My great nephew Colin is currently battling Leukemia. He is 5 years old and has been at CHOP confined to his hospital room since November. He is a true hero, he's been through 2 Chemo treatments already along with other tests and never complains. He smiles, laughs and plays, to say his acceptance of what he is going through is inspirational would be such an understatement. If only love could cure him.
My dear friend Michele was in a car accident in October of 2011, who would have thought this would result in discovering she had kidney cancer. She endured so much since then. She sustained serious injuries to her arm in the accident along with other injuries. After recovery time from the accident she had to undergo 2 surgeries to remove part of both of her kidneys. Michele happens to be Colin's aunt (he must get his fighting spirit from his Aunt Michele). She is one of the strongest people I know.
I could go on and on about both of them. Participating in the Relay for Life is the least I can do to help toward finding a cure for this dreadful disease.
I will be participating on May 03, 2013 and would appreciate your support with a donation toward my fundraising goal. In addition to funding lifesaving research, every dollar raised helps the American Cancer Society provide services to cancer patients in need.
