Last year the Relay in Davenport was great. My mom was the co-chair and she is again this year. Just in case you forgot how much fun we had here is a reminder.
Lately it has felt a bit like every time I turn around a family member or friend has a new cancer story to tell me. I am tired of it and it is time to fight back. This year's Relay has special meaning to my family as my cousin Doug takes up the fight a second time, as if the first wasn't enough. My friend Lora's dad is battling pacreatic cancer in North Dakota and the list goes on and on. Even though I work for the American Cancer Society I still feel like my ability to fight this terrible disease is limited. One thing I can do is join the ranks of Relayers around the world that are raising money to fund the research that will one day stop the insanity of cancer. Please join me in taking up this fight.
