“Kicking Thyroid Cancer’s Ass” is what it will say on the front of our team’s shirts at this year’s Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society. Oh yeah!!! Our team name is “Wings of Hope” which was given by our rockin’ team captain, Chris Prestano. We are putting the team and details together now and it is off to an amazing start. Our friends at Dear Thyroid have been kind enough to provide us with the shirts. ThyCa is going to send us literature to hand out so we can spread more awareness about thyroid cancer. We’ve raised almost $600 and have a team of 4 wonderful women at the moment. Much LOVE to my girls Chris, Angel and Jen E!! (By the way, did I mention that all of this has happend in less than a week?)
According to the American Cancer Society…”Relay began in 1985 when Dr. Gordy Klatt, a colorectal surgeon in Tacoma, Washington, ran and walked around a track for 24 hours to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Since then, Relay has grown from a single man’s passion to fight cancer into the world’s largest movement to end the disease. Each year, more than 3.5 million people in 5,000 communities in the United States, along with additional communities in 19 other countries, gather to take part in this global phenomenon and raise much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer. Thanks to Relay participants, we are creating a world with more birthdays a world where cancer can’t claim another year of anyone’s life.”
