I am participating in the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life because I want to make a meaningful difference in the fight against cancer. Almost everyone has been touched by cancer, either through their own personal battle or through someone they love.
I was diagnosed with colon cancer in July of 2010. I have been clear for four years now, following two surgeries, chemo and radiation therapies.
I also am honoring my mother, Gail Naramore, a 25 year breast cancer survivor who, sadly, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in Novermber, 2010, and passed on January 25, 2011.
Every day, the American Cancer Society is helping us stay well by preventing cancer or finding it at its earliest, most treatable stages. They assist families in finding the best resources to help their friend or loved one deal with a diagnosis and their journey to get well. The American Cancer Society is also rallying communities (like ours!) through events like Relay For Life, to fight back and find cures for this disease.
Please consider making a donation to help the American Cancer Society create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Even a small donation goes a long way in the fight. Together, we can help make sure that cancer never steals another year of anyone’s life! Thank you.
