I Heart Color-Think Pink!

Each year my family participates in the Relay For Life. It started 6 years ago when a friend of mine talked me into joining a team. I was one of the lucky ones that really hadn't had a close family member affected by cancer. You get asked a lot, "why do you Relay", and my response would be that I really for the future. My future, my families future, everyone. Well all that changed 2 years ago (3 days before the event) when my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. Suddenly I found that the Relay For Life took on a whole new meaning in my life.

If you ever get the chance, find a Relay in your area and go. It's fun for the whole family. You don't have to sign up on a team or anything. There is generally a track set up and someone from each team walks around the track at all times. There is food, music and the teams set up booths where you can buy things. At dusk, a luminary ceremony is held honoring all those who have fought the battle of cancer. Find more about the Relay For Life at the American Cancer Society website by clicking here.

Love those around you, believe in yourself, have faith for a better future, cherish the memories, find peace in the struggle, have the strength to carry on, the courage to fight, and most of all, a hope that a cure will be found.

  1. I agree with you completely -- Relay for Life events are definitely worth your participation. For some added inspiration, I invite you to check out this short video -- ahamoment.com/pg/moments/view/1848 -- about one woman's "aha moment" when she realized the impact of her participation in Relay for Life. I hope you enjoy it.


  2. She really sums it all up in that video. There is so much symbolism behind the Relay For Life and I think it's great when people discover that. Thanks so much for sharing!
