To the editor:
American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Logan County is
scheduled for Saturday, May 19, at Lincoln Christian College and
Seminary and Sunday, May 20, at Lincoln College
Relay For Life represents the HOPE that those lost to cancer will
never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported,
and that one day cancer will be eliminated.
Why? To raise funds to support research, education and patient
services in celebration of cancer survivorship in Logan County.
Who? WE NEED:
1. Sponsors. If you can
and would like to help underwrite this event, please contact Kathy
Blaum at 217-733-9372.
2. Teams. If you would be
interested in forming a team or would like to be included on a team,
please contact Debbie Cooley at 217-732-7789.
3. Survivors. If you have
had cancer or are facing it right now, we would love to honor and
encourage you to be a part of our opening ceremony by participating
in our free "survivor lunch" and our "survivor laps" that kick off the
weekend events. Please contact Susan Gehlbach at 217-732-9281.

those who have survived, to share comfort and encouragement, and to
empower us to accelerate the progress toward a future where cancer
doesn't take the lives of our friends and family.
Every dollar raised helps make a difference in this community.
Did you know we help provide free rides to doctor appointments for
