I'm gonna do it

Some of you may remember my post on I Hate Cancer. I felt like all around me people were being diagnosed, or fighting it, or having it return. Some of this, I don't feel free to blog about, it is too personal and too close to home.

That said, I am so extremely grateful for the advances that have been made in cancer research. Cancer is no longer the death sentence it once was.

These advances have given us more time, and hopefully more time to find a cure.

Rather than ranting at a disease that doesn't care and doesn't discriminate, I am going to join the fight.

I am participating in my first Relay for Life.

I am participating in memory of my grandfather and in honor of my dad. While my dad's prognosis isn't dismal, I would really, really rather he was cancer free.

I know almost nothing about Relay for Life other than I will be walking alot and it is to raise money.

Please support Relay for Life. If you don't want to walk it, then donate.

And pray for a cure.


  1. What's the distance? I think part of the key to a lot of those walks and things is being tied to the cause. I will pray for a cure, but also for your family... I've watched my best friend's family be hit with cancer deaths twice recently... and it's a horrible disease.

  2. You're going to love participating in Relay for Life. I did it last year for the first time and loved it. Great event, for a great cause!

  3. Christi, that's a wonderful way to fight a terrible disease. My grandmother found out she had breast cancer when I was still a little girl; she's in her 80's now, and more active than I am. :)

    Praying for your loved ones who are in the midst of the fight.
