Second round with the Relay for Life

Published January 27, 2015 by lynn k scott

I just signed up for my second Relay for Life.  My friend is walking this year, so I signed up with team she is on.

My first Relay was completed a couple years ago; shortly after my sister’s death.  While I remember my mother beating Hodgkin’s Disease and my father losing a short battle with stomach cancer, losing a younger sister to breast cancer devastated me.  I chose to walk in the evening; knowing I would miss the ceremonies and the majority of people would be sleeping.  It was my time to walk, to honor her memory but not be overwhelmed with cancer stories; good and bad.

My goal was to raise at least $100, which I surpassed.  I have the same goal this year and would like to at least double my goal amount.  I am hoping to walk again in the late evening.  Even though this Relay will take place exactly one week after my sister’s 3-year angel-versary, I still am coming to grips that 37 year old sister, mother to three wonderful girls, lost her valiant battle with stage four breast cancer mere months before her 38th birthday.

I walk to help end all cancers so no other family learns what it means to fight this disease.  Whether you realize it or not, cancer isn’t a solitary disease.  It affects the entire family; sometimes community.  Everyone feels its affects.  Together we can make that feeling go away.  No more tears, no more fears and no more worries from hearing a doctor say, “you have cancer”.

I have a donation link, but prefer not to post it on a blog.  If you would like to make a donation or help share my donation link and my story, please contact me and I’ll send you the information via email.

Thank you!
