You can’t hide from cancer, but you can fight it. You can’t hide from cancer, but you can find hope despite it.

No matter where you are in life, you’ve been impacted by that horrible word we all dread to hear.  You may have battled it yourself. Or sat with a friend as they underwent chemo, wondering if you were really helping in that moment. You may be preparing yourself for the road ahead as the diagnosis just came down for your loved one.

Cancer touches us all, which is why year after year we gather together to Relay for Life.
