The question that I have asked for four years at , "How many of you have lost a pet or someone you know to cancer?", was answered on May 6, 2012 with almost every hand raised. I am hopeful that one day, when I ask that question, there will be less hands raised in sadness and more hands clapping in celebration.
What will it take? It takes more people who are passionate about kicking cancer's butt to do something about it. It takes you to raise your hand to give your neighbor, a cancer patient, a ride to a doctor's appointment. It takes one store to put one poster in one window to spread the word about Relay to hundreds. It takes one community to gather together in support of survivors, caregivers, family, and friends.
Relay For Life of Monrovia will begin Saturday, June 2 at 10am at Recreation Park and go until 10am Sunday, June 3. Please join your community, your neighbor, your friends, your family.
