While reading a local paper, I came across information on an event that struck a personal cord with me.  So I thought I would blog about it here to share with others, in hopes of furthering a great cause.

The American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Elkhart County officially gets underway at 6:30pm Thursday, February 2, at The Lerner Theater with a kick-off rally to launch fundraising efforts for the this year. The 2012 relay will take place, June 16-17, at Concord High School. For more information contact Juliana Newbill at Juliana.newbill@cancer.org. More

My Grandmother has been a long time cancer survivor and fighter and she’s an inspiration.  She has never lost her courage or determination. I cannot think of a better way to celebrate her accomplishments than by participating in this Relay. The relay is not just a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society; it’s also a celebration of survival.

I realize many of you cannot attend this local kick-off, but there are probably other opportunities to get involved in your community.  You may save a life. More

How do you remember or currently support friends and/or family touched by cancer?
