Why I relay: Father, grandmother died of cancer


I participate in Relay for Life because it is a good cause. Like countless others, I know of many people who have been affected by cancer.

It is like a silent enemy. Whatever we can do to help end the fight is worthwhile.

I also have some personal reasons to participate. About 25 years ago, my dad and my grandma both died as a result of cancer.
