Sanilac Relay for Life fundraiser this Saturday

Sanilac Relay for Life fundraiser this Saturday

As of eight days before Relay, the amount raised was $52,277.

The Adams County Relay For Life event will move indoors Friday due to the strong chance for showers and thunderstorms.

The team or family event will be an opportunity for knowledge exchange and to create awareness about cancer. It was created to represent a day in the life of a cancer survivor.

"Government also has the responsibility of providing not just treatment, but also care and support".

Belvidere - It is time for the annual Relay for Life of Boone and Winnebago Counties.

All proceeds from games and activities will be used order to fund research and cancer support materials through the American Cancer Society.

Turnout this year was down, partially due to the rainy weather. Survivors and caregivers were treated to a meal of hamburgers and hot dogs, potato salad, pretzels, and cupcakes.

The event drew people from all over the community, and survivors willing to share their story.

Martell Walls was the speaker for the event and the inspiration behind "Team Momma". "She gave her life for my wife to be born", Broughton said. My daughter was in 4-H and they volunteered.

"During that time ahead of the opening ceremonies, we have The Brigadoons who are going to play and the MacCullouch Dancers who will do a performance", explained Allison St-Jean, community fundraising specialist with the cancer society. This year, the society hopes to raise $25 million across the country in relays.

Betler, who is celebrating 10 years as a survivor of breast cancer, said that cancer affects everyone, not just the person that has it. "Don't always believe the first person that you see, get a second opinion".

Walls' cancer has grown to her lymph nodes and her lungs.

Eastbourne's Relay for Life 2018 takes place this weekend and is set to be an event full of family fun.

"They called her and then she called me and said it wasn't something she really wanted to do", Ellis said. "There is always hope and have faith". Throughout the years, Ellis has seen several friends and contemporaries named as Honorary Chairs, but never thought one day she'd join them on that list. She was a member of the team "Merry Mary Walkers".

"We have bouncy castles, a dunk tank, water balloon fights, air guitar contests, a barbecue and good music", said MacIntyre, who is graduating this June.

"He was running for a "Disney on Ice Show" at the SSEC because we were late and he was taken from the SSEC to the Royal Victoria Hospital in an ambulance and diagnosed four days later". Many gather to remember those they have lost to cancer. When she wraps radiation, Ellis said she has "a few more tests", as well as another surgery.
