My First Experience of Relay for Life
I wanted to share my first experience of Relay for Life..
I arrived at 4pm and we immediatley started setting things up.
My responsibility was to sell Luminaria, and to pass out Shirts to survivors and give them their goodie bags. At 6pm we had a wonderful chicken dinner.
7pm opening Ceromonies began.
then the survivors walked, followed by survivors, and care givers, etc..
Our theme was Carnival.
I did great until luminaria's were lite. As I bent over to lite a candle for my mother in law who lost her battle to throat and stomach cancer. Then I couldn't fight the tears.
Anyway, before this becomes a book, I just wanted to let you know that I said prayers for each and everyone of you who have touched my heart.
Why I walked in Relay For Life
I walked because I want to be one voice that speaks for those who can't.
I walked so one day I won't have to tell my family again, I have cancer.
I walked for family members that lost their battle to cancer.
I walked for my E-Warrior Sisters & Brothers on the ACS Website.
I walked and will continue to walk until there is a cure.
I thank each and everyone of you, for just being you
