This year I focused on joining the committee for Relay for Life Race held at the Cain Middle School in Rockwall Texas and the Survivor dinner that was held at the Mesquite Convention Center in Mesquite Texas. In the fight against cancer, silence is the last thing we need. Your local American Cancer Society Relay For Life event is a great place to take action and make noise. The Relay For Life movement features community and campus events that offer an inspiring opportunity to honor cancer survivors, promote how individuals can reduce their cancer risk, and raise money to help end cancer. Today, with the support of thousands of volunteers, the American Cancer Society is helping save more than 400 lives a day. And we won’t stop until we finish the fight against cancer! Many donators supported this cause and were incredibly giving in their time, energy, money, love and kindness. My heart was full from being able to get to know some of my fellow survivors and families, team participants and generous supporters of this disease. My wish is that one day we are not able to do a function like this and have found a treatment that will help everyone that we love to heal and not leave our sides. I myself am a cancer survivor and I also have people that are very very close to my heart that have fought this awful epidemic. I am so grateful to everyone that teamed up with us to aid in this cure. Keep strong and fight long! Please find a list after the images of the vendors that gave their time and products for support of our survivors to give them a fabulous night of “Celebrating them”!
