RELAY FOR LIFE

We are involved in the Relay For Life Walk-A-Thon for the American Cancer Society. This disease has most likely affected someone in your family and/or people you know in the community. Not one of us is unscathed by it.


Please consider donating to our group's Relay For Life. Our church has many members who are affected by this disease, and it is a group effort to raise the monies to meet our goal of $2000.


The Walk-A-Thon starts out as a party in the evening and goes all night long. Candles are lit and placed in bags named with those we know and love who are affected by these disease.


This year our family will be walking in concert for the following people: my mother, Sue, and several children who have been affected: my cousin ~ Jodi; and others: Ryan, Jack, Andrew and Brianna; and my new blogger friend, Shellie! Some are survivor stories, others have taught us courage and bravery and the love of angels sitting around bedsides welcoming the little ones into heaven.
