Relay For Life, May 17: 'Celebrate. Remember. Fight Back.'

Send a link to a friend

To the editor:

Surrounded by all of my cancer-surviving friends at the Relay For Life, they remind me how tough it can be to go through cancer. But, thanks to the help of my family, friends and the American Cancer Society, I know that cancer can be beaten. I hope that you will join Relay For Life of Logan County on Saturday, May 17, to "Celebrate. Remember. Fight Back."

Please come prepared to celebrate. Cheer loudly for the survivors who will kick off the event by walking the survivor's lap together.


At dusk, take time to remember at the luminaria ceremony. Hundreds of luminaria will be lit. Each luminaria represents a special friend or loved one touched by cancer. It is a moving and incredibly hopeful ceremony.

At Relay For Life and throughout the year, join us as we fight back against this awful disease. The American Cancer Society has been an active part of our community, offering patient and family services, cancer support groups, tobacco control programs, and lifesaving research. Relay For Life helps fund these important programs.

This is a family-focused event for the entire community. Won't you join us for Relay For Life of Logan County, being held Saturday, May 17, at Lincoln Christian College in Lincoln, as we celebrate cancer survivors and honor those in the community who have lost their battle with cancer? It is one way we can all make a difference for cancer patients, survivors and their families now -- and in the future.

For more information about forming a team, luminaria or supporting Relay For Life, please call me at 732-7789, call the American Cancer Society at 1-800-ACS-2345 or visit our website at www.relayforlifelogan.com.
